Back in July 2016, I made an appointment for this shop and a 2nd appointment for another shop in the same building and was about to give this shop a call to cancel my appointment because I was going to settle for a gown that I've tried on and liked at the other shop. I am glad I went for the appointment anyways because I met Trisha, the sales person at Fashions By Farina who has listened to my preferences, thoughts and ideas. Trisha is fantastic, "motherly", listens between the lines and not pushy at all. I was telling her about the gowns that I've tried on at the other bridal shops, what I like and didn't like - I didn't have a clear idea of what I wanted. She listened and pulled a gown off the rack and asked me to put it on. I tried it on and knew it was the one. I booked my wedding gown at the end of my first appointment!!
Marisol, the in-house seamstress was experienced and professional. Her work was perfect and my gown fit like a glove! I went for 3 fittings and each time I was nervous about the end product but upon seeing Marisol's work on me, I am reassured.
Thank you to the team for my lovely dress. I got so many compliments on the day of how beautiful it was and how it suited me so well. I felt like a princess. Each appointment had friendly staff and prompt service. Also I never felt any pressure to go in a direction picking a gown that I didnt like - they knew I knew what I wanted and brought it together. Thank you again!!
They were fantastic! Ange was extremely blunt but I loved that! Her honesty and her bluntness is what I loved about my experience with them. She wasn't shy in telling me the truth and because of that I wore the most beautiful dress and I really appreciated it. I traveled 4 times from the Gold Coast to Sydney to see them and their service was outstanding every time.
I would like to thank the whole team so much for turning my wedding dress dream into reality. After turning to you ladies after an unpleasant experience elsewhere you reassured me that there is still wonderful bridal salons out there with beautiful ladies who love what they do. You made me feel at ease while trying my dress on again after having not seen it for 9 months, especially considering I still wasn’t convinced it was the one for me. You made changes to my dress that I was told elsewhere wasn’t possible and were so patient with me even after numerous alterations needing to be done. Nothing was ever too much work for you ladies and you all went above and beyond with making my dress just how I wanted it. I felt so beautiful on my wedding day so again thank you so much.
My Pronovias dress was perfect and fit like a glove. Could not fault the service and attentiveness of the staff (Ange, Nicky) at Fashions by Farina. They were wonderful. I also liked that alterations were a fixed cost so I wasn't too worried of things blowing out of scale (I only required the two fittings)
After a long day dress shopping, I walked into Fashions By Farina without an appointment and was lucky that they could fit me in 30 minutes before closing on a Saturday. My attendant chose a lot of dresses for me to try on, and they were all beautiful and fit perfectly. The fabrics are gorgeous and you can tell they have been made with care. I ended up buying an Essense of Australia gown. Go in with an open mind and let the experts find you something!!
Expensive yes but it's my wedding. A bit pushy and thank god my mum was there who is equally pushy. Dream dress. Great advice. Tailoring perfect. Had a princess gown with sweetheart neck. Didn't pull it up once. So light despite many layers. Looked amazing. Bustle never failed me. Cheaper elsewhere but quality not worth it. Would definitely recommend.
My fitting at Fashions by Farina was just ok-standard appointment, pretty rushed and you don't get many dresses, BUT they were very kind once I bought my dress and the tailor was lovely and boy was she talented-she did an absolutely perfect job. This store also has a lot of beautiful dresses at a MUCH better price point than most of Sydney-I would easily recommend Fashions by Farina to anyone!
Coming into the store as a nervous bride-to-be I could not have asked for a better assistant. My experience at Fashions By Farina (both shopping and fittings) were all low stress and enjoyable. I was able to try on numerous dresses and was given honest feedback and suggestions. I am grateful we were served by such friendly, welcoming and approachable staff. My dress was also absolutely amazing, super comfortable and a great fit. I spent much of my wedding day getting complemented by my guests and staff of the Hunter Valley Gardens.
Dress was too big around torso after third-'final' fitting. Made another appointment within 2 days. Vickie tried hard to convince me further alteration was not necessary. Then paradoxically said I must have lost weight(2days!). Then said store won't charge extra like it was a favour! (After having-paid $650 for alterations)!
Just wanted to say huge thank you to the lovely Ange who helped me select my perfect gown. Nothing was ever a bother even me being an indecisive bride. I absolutely love my dress and everyone said how beautiful fitted it was on the big day.
Also thank you to lovely tailor ( not sure of name little lady ) who made sure all was perfect and I was 100% happy even if that meant staying back to fix my bodice with some extra lace to cover up the boning line.
Terrible!!!! I ended up buying my dress from them but they truly ruined my experience and excitement of buying my wedding dress! From the moment I got there they fought amongst themselves about who has the right to serve me, until the rude and ridiculous service and lies they created when it came to minor alterations that I wanted! If I had a chance and more time I would have walked out right at the start!! Don't recommend them to my worst enemy!! Very unprofessional!!!
