I watched this skirt from the moment I got engaged, in March 2015. I love the way it draped, loved the rosy tone, loved the sparkle. I ordered this in early 2016 and sent measurements in April. Anya is an absolute delight to work with. She's calm and reassuring. She responds with lightning speed. She's helpful and patient. Her instructions for measurements were super thorough. I received my skirt a month after sending measurements, way faster than my expectations. I was so nervous about fit that it was really nice to know I'd have the piece long before my wedding and could try it on repeatedly. Still, I wasn't prepared for just how perfect the skirt would be. It is delightful and it loves the light. It is a perfect combination of classic style and modern flair. I will feel like a queen getting married in this skirt. Thank you!

I'm not a "white dress" kind of girl. So I spent months search bridal shops, etsy shops, and online shops for an affordable wedding dress that fit me well, was comfortable, and wasn't too stuffy/fussy/glittery, all while being classic and beautiful. Tall order! I tried on hundreds of dresses. I ordered Merindah as a gamble because it was a sample, and was really disappointed when the dress was a bit too low cut for me. I messaged Anya, and for a small additional fee she made me a new dress, exact to my specifications. (jaw drop!) Anya was super communicative as she made my new dress, and it was done right in the time frame she promised. My new dress came today and it's a dream. It fits so beautifully, the details are gorgeous, and it's better than anything I could have imagined! Bottom line: Anya is incredible!

I am completely and utterly in love with my Leewana Wedding Dress. I was very nervous about shopping online for a dress, and am a complete novice in all things dress related, but Anya was helpful and genuine throughout the whole process. She conducted herself with the utmost professionalism, and any doubts I had were eased by her knowledge and expertise. I was ordering from Australia with a close deadline, and the offer of the Rush Order option was such a help, but Anya did better than the Rush Order - she got the dress to me within 3 weeks of purchase, I wasn't expecting it for another month!! But she had had some time open up so she got right onto my dress. But aside from the professionalism with which Anya operated, the real magic here is the dress. IT. IS. GORGEOUS! I felt like a queen on my wedding day! Thank you so much! x
Passion is what its all about
When shopping Bridal or Evening Wear I always felt dulled down by what I found, fit was wrong, style didn't work. What I was looking for was just never out there. The experience was LACK LUSTER.
I believe personality should be in what I wear, what everyone wears. We should be able to live our days wearing things that express who we are and how we feel. I have created a career that I am passionate about based on expressing ladies personalities....because that's my personality, Welcome to Anya Dionne!
