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. Thanks, ladies!

All the team at Fashions by Farina were amazing. I cannot fault their dresses or their staff. Thank you for helping me find my dream wedding dress. You were kind, helpful and understanding.

Angie was great from Fashions By Farina. She was very funny and entertaining. She made it very entertaining and she was willing to think outside the box. The dress was amazing I loved it so much!

Great customer service, Vicky was very helpful as were the rest of the team that assisted me with my fittings. Again a pandemic wedding, the team were so understanding and accommodating to my weight fluctuations during the stressful time of wedding postponing. Great pricing for an Australian made gown.

The ladies at Fashions by Farina were so welcoming and friendly, they made the whole process comfortable and chill. Trisha was so funny and I loved having her to help me try on and find my favourite dress. Found my dress during my very first fitting and had it within a few months and only three visits. The alteration was a little pricey even though I didn't have much to alter. Overall great expereince.

I went to Fashions by Farina after my best friend had bought her dress there and remembered the brilliant personalized service she had received. I was not disappointed. The ladies at Fashions by Farina made me feel beautiful and gave me all the time and advice I needed to find my perfect gown. It really was a fairytale dress and I could not have been more pleased.

I went into the store with a very specific idea in mind and spent over 3 hours in the store before i tried on the last dress (Essense of Australia D2298) and it was the one. The sales assistant wasn't pushy & even said I could go home and sleep on it if I wanted to but I ordered the dress right that day. The alterations only took two fittings because they offered to make any final changes during the second fitting and the dress fit so perfectly I couldn't have asked for it to be any better. Bottom line is that these ladies were so accommodating (offering cups of tea/coffee/champagne all the time) and I honestly couldn't have asked for a better place to purchase my dress from. Thank you to every single person in this store - you helped my wedding dreams come true!

Fashion by Farina has many beautiful wedding dresses to choose from. Farina’s staff helped me find mine for my wedding. The staff is professional and has a good sense of style. I recommend people to book and visit the shop.

I loved my wedding dress, most of the people who worked there were lovely but the alteration process was painful and stressful. I recommend the beautiful dresses they have but not so much the alterations.

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.

Good service and there was no drama. I knew what I liked so I didn't have to spend too long looking. I had the dress altered and they were helpful with this. Great quality dress.

There was a lot of range at the shops and my consultant was lovely (a but pushy, but all bridal consultants are and I definitely dealt with worse). My dress came in and was altered on time, it was absolutely perfect. The location is also very convenient.

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 dress was Essence of Australia, stunning fitted lace piece with a long train. The women who work at Fashions by Farina are adorable! I always loved seeing them at my fittings because they just made everything so fun.

Fashions by Farina were fantastic throughout the whole process of selecting and purchasing my wedding dress. They didn't have the dress I was interested in, in the Sydney store so they flew it down from Queensland for me to try on. They were really friendly, polite and professional.

A good variety of wedding gowns, you will be able to find your dream dress here. My dress was delivered on time as promised. Luckily I did not need any alternation!

They are absolutely amazing! They ask you what you like, suggest dresses you'd never think of and help you find the perfect dress. You even have your own separate, private area to try them all on. It was great!

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!

It was the second bridal store i had walked into and i didn't think i would buy a dress that day. The staff were caring and made me feel comfortable. They catered for as many fittings as I needed and made me feel really comfortable.

They were so helpful in finding a dress for me. When I originally ordered my dress, I didn't realise I was pregnant. We then postponed the wedding for a year and they were so accommodating by holding the dress for me a bit longer.

The ladies helped me find the perfect dress like I am sure many others! They were so attentive!

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)!

Great location and a lady who helped me to choose my dress was very patient and helpful. I had 2 fittings and my tailor alterations were down by an amazing italian lady (think her name was Maria). If you have a chance to choose a tailor to work with I would highly recommend her. Mila

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.

My dress was beautiful!! The ladies made sure it fit me perfect and allowed a dress fitting the week of the wedding to ensure it was perfect on the day.

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!!!
