Customer Love Hamilton 06/03/2018

Wanted to say a huge thank you to Joanne for helping me find the perfect dress. I needed to find a dress for a special event and she was wonderful, offering honest opinions and making suggestions! She was lovely! This was my first time shopping at Annah Stretton but it won’t be the last!

Customer Love Newmarket 28/02/2018

We love shopping at Annah Stretton Newmarket! Maureen at the Newmarket store is just wonderful. Really helped my friend and I pick dresses for her wedding and graduation. She really listened to what we were after and made us both feel comfortable and fabulous. We will definitely be going back, as she knows how to shop for your figure!

Customer Love Christchurch 20/02/2018

A huge thank you to the ladies at Colombo Annah Stretton and especially Anna! They took a very stressful situation and turned it into a wonderful experience. Just a week out from my daughter's wedding I had a crisis of confidence in what I'd chosen to wear. I can live/work in Australian indigenous communities, I am comfortable with getting lost walking by myself in Kathmandu, but this dress business is way out of my comfort zone! I usually dress in kathmandu or icebreaker and Anna managed to encourage and empower me, and made me feel beautiful in the Aleena Anne Dress. What wonderful women. What a lovely job you have making women feel strong and beautiful. You should Indeed be very proud of your staff.

Customer Love Havelock North 23/01/2018

I recently shopped at Annah Stretton in Havelock North - I would like to say best shopping experience ever!! Rachel was lovely, helpful and very personable. She turned dress shopping, which at times can be stressful into a wonderful experience.

Customer Love Devonport 22/01/2018

Lyuba in the Devonport Outlet Store is a darling - She made our shopping experience so fun!! And managed to sell us far more than we had intended to buy - including four or five pieces she picked off the rack, not me. I think I’m now officially “Sharon dressed by Annah Stretton”

Customer Love Online

Thanks so much for the quick delivery. I love wearing the dress and have had many compliments.

Customer Love Howick 

Had the most refreshingly wonderful dress shopping experience I have had in years at your Howick store. Your Salesperson, Frances, was full of great styling ideas, took the time to listen to what I was wanting, and while the dress I wanted was not available at that store, she helped me order it online - Cant wait for my dress to arrive - I will certainly be back.

Customer Love Hamilton 22/11/17

I wandered into your lovely Hamilton store wanting to purchase an outfit for my sons wedding.  The lovely Niki was simply amazing, she welcomed me, introduced herself and listened to my thoughts.  I left with the perfect lace dress in  the perfect colour.  I will definitely be back.

Customer Love Christchurch 21/11/17

Last weekend my partner dragged me kicking and screaming into your wonderful Christchurch store. My apprehension and reluctance to try anything on was soon alleviated by the wonderful Izy, who listened and understood me. I walked out of the shop knowing I had an outfit that looked great and I felt fabulous! The most awesome personalized shopping experience ever!

Customer Love - Hamilton 09 11 17

 I have just had the best clothes shopping experience ever! I visited the Hamilton store, and the sales assistant was fantastic! She knew exactly what was going to look good (I am 5 foot 1 with a few rolly bits!) and went through outfits with me. She didn't even laugh when I put the first dress on backwards! The clothes are wonderful but the help I got was brilliant. I left with a fantastic outfit and I cannot recommend Annah Stretton enough. Sue

Customer Love - Taupo 25 10 17

Hi, last Friday I visited your Taupo store.  Chrissie made us feel welcome and got to work finding the perfect outfit for me. She asked the right questions, knew the stock thoroughly and knew exactly what would suit me, both style and colour. She gave me a variety of different outfits and when showing me the "flip-it" dress, she was able to demonstrate a number of different ways to wear it. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Chrissie and I happily left the store having purchased 3 of your beautiful dresses, and she also told me where to find the tutorials for more ideas. I was so impressed with Chrissie that I felt it was important for her to be acknowledged as she worked so hard to find what I was looking for and gave such great service. You have a real gem in Chrissie!


Customer Love - Ponsonby 24 10 17

It's so great to get feedback like this from our customers - "I just popped into your store in Ponsonby and saw Maureen who was was awesome and genuine and I could sense her passion for people and fashion. I had so much fun and really appreciate her personal way of communicating with me and that she went the extra mile when I was still there after the shop had closed without ever mentioning this. It's customer service like this that I truly miss in retail. Thank you" from Marieke 


Customer Love - Christchurch 09 10 17

I just needed to let you know about my most amazing shopping experience I had in your Christchurch store at The Colombo. On the hunt for a dress for my son's upcoming wedding and having exhausted the obvious shops, I was beginning to think I had to settle for an outfit that wasn't me but would make me 'look the part' for the day. That was until I called into your Christchurch store with my husband. From the moment I walked in and was greeted by the divine shop assistant Angela, I knew I had found the right place. She was so wonderful putting me at ease and also encouraging me to look for something that was 'me'. She carefully listened to what it was I was looking for but also encouraged me to try on outfits that I may not have considered myself. Wow, I ended up finding the perfect outfit as well as buying a second because I just loved it so much. Thank you for your beautiful designs and thank you to your amazing staff. Silvia

 Customer Love - Havelock North. 22 08 17

Clelia in your Havelock North store was absolutely amazing to deal with. She helped me with an outfit for my son's wedding, and she knew exactly what I was after and what would be suitable. Shop assistants like her are few and far between. Lauraine, Central Hawkes Bay. 



Customer Love - Christchurch Store. 15 08 17

The wonderful staff in the Colombo Street store in Chrustchurch are so helpful, kind & caring. I went in and had a styling session with Anna and I came out with three gorgeous dresses and a huge confidence boost! Anna's vast experience in dressing all body shapes & her knowledge of the clothing made it so easy. Anna is a very special person, who takes the time to listen to the customer and make shopping at Annah Stretton a very pleasant experience. Thanks again. Melissa

Customer Love - Tauranga Store. 20 07 17

I popped into your store in Tauranga and was looked after by Tanya. I didn't think I would find anything for me but Tanya helped me find a couple of dresses that suited my body type!!! I got one of your flipit dresses so feel like I have walked out with 3 dresses. Tanya was very supportive and took her time to explain the dresses and what looks good on me. I walked out feeling like I have clothes to make me show off the better side of me!!!! 
Shop our Flipits here.



Customer Love - Christchurch Store 12 07 17

It's true! A shopping experience in an Annah Stretton is better than chocolate! Emma from Christchurch tells us about her wonderful experience in our Colombo stopre with Angela and Izy.

Customer Love - Tauranga Store - 04 07 16

Kia ora, Our daughter recently got married, an amazing day for any mother. There are always stresses and delights mixed into one exciting roller coaster of an event. I really don't do shopping well. I'm 6 foot tall and always feel awkward...until I met your wonderful salesperson in Tauranga. She chose out for me 3 dresses that she believed would suit me. I didn't have to try on lots of things that would have made me feel yuck. I ended up with two dresses, and I love them both. I felt great about myself. The comments I got from family and friends were so lovely at the wedding, it just added to a beautiful day for our whanau. Thank you so much, nga mihi nunui ki a koutou  Sara

Customer Love - Colombo Store 23 06 17

Hi I just wanted to pass on that today I visited the Colombo store and I must say the ladies in there are amazing. From the moment I walked in Angela was fantastic. She thoroughly spoiled me and made me feel wonderful. I have never had so much fun or been looked after so well. I had two small boys with me and both ladies didn't make me feel that they were a problem. Thank them soo much It made me feel wonderful and I cant wait to wear my outfit. They have given me confidence I have not had in years. Thank you.



Customer Love - Havelock North Store 12 06 17

I shopped at your Havelock North Store yesterday and it was one of the best shopping experiences I have ever had. The manageress and her friend were extremely friendly and helpful and a pleasure to deal with. The purchase was beautifully wrapped and it felt like a lovely gift. Thank you.



Customer Love - Otaki Store 8 06 17

Just been into Otaki store this morning to look for something to wear to a wedding.I had the most wonderful experience. Excellent help and service. Knowledgable sales person ( wish I had asked her name) several choices given, great advice. A must visit shop. Will be taking friends there. Thank you for the service you made my day! Sondra



Customer Love - Teed Street 5 06 17

Yesterday we were in your Teed Street store in Newmarket Auckland.

I don’t usually do this but I really needed to write in and say what a wonderful Assistant that you had working on Monday.

Mum is looking for something really specific that she doesn’t quite know what it is yet, and the lady there was SUPER helpful and supportive and not at all pushy.

Mum did try on 5 outfits, which is some kind of legend record for her; she usually loses interest on the 2nd outfit change.

So, instead of just walking away and carrying on our shopping experience, I have decided to take time out of my day to contact “Annah Stretton” and let you know that you have a wonderful employee up there in Newmarket and we REALLY appreciated her assistance yesterday.

Thank you for employing her because she made a rather stress filled day really enjoyable in the Annah Stretton Store.



Customer Love - Christchurch 29 05 17

I have been popping in to your Colombo store for a few years now and never fail to walk away with a light heart and a happy smile (not to mention beautiful clothes). I walked in there yesterday to be greeted by the gorgeous Angela who talked to me like an old friend and helped me in an attentive but not intrusive way. As I tried on outfit after outfit she was honest and helpful and I just had so much fun... almost not wanting to leave! The clothes are gorgeous and I wore a whole outfit of AS last night out to dinner. I felt a million dollars and to be honest a big part of that was the incredible experience I had in the store. The best part is, that it is a consistent experience - I just can't rave enough. Josie



Customer Love - Devonport 17 05 17

On Friday I went to the Devonport store and was served by Lyuba.

Wow! What fantastic service. She treated me like a VIP customer. She took the time to understand specifically what I was looking for, and then did everything she could to achieve it. She was positive, encouraging and so genuine. I felt like I walked out of the store with not only some new clothes but a new friend as well.  The entire experience was an extraordinary shopping experience.

Thank you Lyuba. I love my new clothes and I feel fantastic in them.  Whenever I wear them I will remember the wonderful experience you created for me while shopping under your care.




Customer Love - Pukekohe 08 05 17

I had the most wonderful shopping experience on Saturday in the Pukekohe shop. Your lady was so knowledgeable helpful and friendly. Will definitely be going back again and again.



Customer Love - Whitianga 18 04 17

Just a huge thank you to the Whitianga store. You ladies were great. I have always been a big girl 22 or 3xl in size. But over Easter weekend I went dress shopping for a dress for my daughters wedding. So I went into the Whitianga store and the ladies were very helpful, lovely, complimentary and patient with me. They made me feel beautiful in all the dresses I tried on. So thank you to the two ladies that served me over 2 days. You are an asset to the Annah Stretton Company. Wendy.



Customer Love - Devonport 18 04 17

I just wanted to say how helpful Lyuba at your Devonport store is. I went in intending to buy a jacket to match one of my summer dresses and left with the perfect pair of trousers a new dress and the jacket!! It's my second visit to the store and I'll definitely be back. Kerrie



Customer Love - Hamilton 10 04 17

I just wanted to message you about your amazing saleswoman and Manager at your Hamilton store. She really flies the flag for your brand and absolutely rocks. As a business owner I know how hard it is to find good staff so I thought I would send you a note to say she really is an asset to your company. Megan



Customer Love - Palmerston North 10 04 17

A big thank you to Vanessa at the Palmerston North Store. She was fantastic at helping me find a dress for a special occasion.  Extremely helpful and full of knowledge, my friends and I had a lot of fun. Thanks Vanessa from Julie



Customer Love - Havelock North 03 04 17

I just wanted to compliment Jacqui at the Havelock North store for her facebook posts on Annah S clothing, she rocks the look and because of her recent post of the houndstooth pants I went in and purchased not only them but a beautiful jacket as well. She is the best sales person I have come across, not pushy but knows her styles, her accessories and how the looks work! She is amazing! Cheers Jacqui! From Cherie




 Customer Love Hamilton 27/03/17 - 

I had my first ever Annah Stretton shopping experience this morning in the Hamilton store and I am beyond thrilled with my purchases. The very lovely Joanne styled me to perfection and encouraged me to try new things, I felt fabulous and the clothes fit like a dream on my curves. The customer service I recieved was just such a highlight that I cannot wait to return for some more styling and to find some more new treasures.



Customer Love Christchurch 22 03 17

Big thank you to Annah Stretton Colombo St for the amazing customer service in repairing the flower I returned recently. Beyond the flower my Flipit has been fabulous & I adore coming in and being looked after so well. Thank you <3




Customer Love Hamilton 02 03 17

I just wanted to pass on some feedback from my shopping experience at your Hamilton store yesterday. It is the first time I have been in an Annah Stretton store and I had left it late to find something to wear to a wedding in Christchurch this weekend! Joanne served me and was amazing. She was so professional, gave great advice and tips on how to wear the garment I tried on, how to accessorise it, other ways to make it work, etc. She was honest with her feedback and advice which I really like when shopping for clothes (not my favourite past-time). I now have something really nice to wear to the wedding, and to other events....and just in time. Joanne gets my vote for best ever friendly and professional customer service. My thanks to her for a great shopping experience. Regards, Dianne 





Customer Love - Newmarket 15 02 17 

Hi there.  I just wanted to thank your wonderful staff in your Newmarket shop.  I got married in one of your dresses last Sunday - a wedding planned only 10 days ago as a result of my husband being diagnosed with an inoperable  brain tumour last month and starting radiation treatment this week.   Your shop was the first place we went and together we  chose the first dress I tried on (though we did experiment with a few more after that!)Belinda might recall it was a red lace dress.  It really had the wow factor!





Customer Love - Christchurch 10 02 17

Huge 'thank you's' to Angela aka Arabella in your Christchurch Sydenham store for showing me the most beautifully devine dress to make the switch from jandals and shorts to Mother of the Bride for my daughters wedding last Saturday. Angela was absolutely incredible and truly brought a tear to my eye with she created on me. I can honestly say she made me feel like I was the only one in the store, such was her level of attention. Thank you again Arabella X




Customer Love - Hamilton 07 02 17

Hi, I am normally found in shorts and t-shirt so shopping for a dress for a wedding was way out of my comfort zone.  I popped into the Hamilton store and found my fairy god mother.  Joanne knew from the moment I walked in what colours would suit me and after a short conversation Joanne, ably assisted by Deborah, dressed and accessorised me.  The customer service from these two ladies was outstanding and I left feeling amazing!  Thank you. Cheryl.




Customer Love - Online Store 02 02 17

I ordered a garment I love from Annah Stretton online shop. It arrived in a different colour to the one I'd ordered (more a different shade of colour really due to a bar code error etc etc). I rang Sheryl at the online orders contact centre and am blown away by the efficiency, courtesy and attention I have received! Thank you Annah Stretton Fashion for your exemplary customer service and dedication to going the extra mile (and of course for your beautiful, unique and limited edition clothes).



Customer Love, Devonport  31 01 17

I bought a gorgeous dress from your Devonport shop yesterday for a friend's wedding.  Lyuba was absolutely superb.  She has a warm, friendly greeting for everyone who comes in.  The service and care that Lyuba gives to help with choice without any pressure is rare.She clearly loves her job and I found the shopping experience yesterday thoroughly enjoyable. Debbie



Customer Love Devonport 27 01 17

My husband and I just popped into your Devonport shop while holidaying in Auckland earlier this month.  In the back of my mind was an up coming wedding and my inadequate wardrobe, so I said "yes I am looking for something" to Lyuba's enquiry.  Lyuba was fantastic suggesting new ideas, helping me in and out of various options, popping accessories on and increasing the ideas and creative fun.  My husband meanwhile was happily sitting on a couch, bloke magazines filling the time as I disappeared and  then reemerged wearing the next option.  He was happy. Lyuba was superb.  We left some time later with two glorious pieces, some great accessorising ideas and masses of confidence.  Now I just have to get my bloke to buy some trousers.  Its nice to be excited about my outfit. Thanks Lyuba for being the highlight of our Devonport day. Rowena




Customer Love - Christchurch 20 01 17.

Izy from Annah Stretton in Christchurch was so wonderful helping me prepare for my sons wedding in Hollywood, I felt ready for the red carpet. Barbara



Customer Love - Whitianga Store 10 01 17

Your shop assistant Emma from your Whitianga store is amazing,  so helpful, pleasant and knowledgable on trying to dress a very short plump figure, she is a gem, and a valuable employee. Kerry 



Customer Love - Christchurch Store  07 01 17

Hi Angela, I am not sure whether you were the one who served me last month, but I just wanted to say the service I got was amazing. I have never had an experience quite like that. I was treated with respect and kindness. With being "curvy" I have always shied away from asking for help... but never again. I was made to feel beautiful and came away feeling amazing.

Thank you doesn't even come close! I will definitely be back. I've attached a photo of my daughters graduation (for which the dress was purchased). I felt like a million dollars! And now, my same daughter is getting married and will definitely be stopping by.

So thank you for making me feel amazing (oh and for putting on Neil Diamond for my partner)

Warm regards,





Customer Love - Taupo Pop-Up  15 12 16

I have just had incredibly good service in the Taupo pop up shop. I am a bigger size and the sales women helped me look around, suggested clothing and how to wear certain items. I managed to find a top which she also made a nice comment about.  So a gold star to the Taupo assistant.



Customer Love - Havelock North and Christchurch  14 12 16

On my vacation (first time back in New Zealand after 5 years), I walked into the Annah Stretton shops of both Havelock North and Christchurch. Both times were an absolute delight, and this because of the EXCELLENT help and guidance by your staff! What fun to try on the wrap-dresses in all these different ways! I had a great time -thank you girls!!  I go home now (back to Brussels-Belgium) with an absolutely fabulous blue flower dress to add to my 'Annah Stretton-collection'Thank you heaps !! I regularly get compliments on the dresses/outfits I already own.





Customer Love - Howick  12 12 16

Went to your Howick store today to try to find a dress for my daughters wedding. I really didn't think you would have any dresses to cater for me (short and roundish). Very pleasantly surprised and impressed!  The ladies in this store made me feel extremely welcome and helped me find the perfect dress!!  They were extremely patient and incredibly helpful (and honest which was pleasantly surprising!)  Not only did I come away with the perfect dress but accessories too!!  Please pass on my sincerest thanks to them both. They made a very worried mother of the bride extremely happy. Kindest regards, Dale




Customer Love - Takapuna  08 12 16

I would love to tell you about my fantastic experience recently at your Takapuna branch.  Not only did your wonderful saleslady assist me with finding the most wonderful clothes, and arranging for out of stock items to be delivered to the store for later collection, she also followed up with Customer Service to check whether she could apply an online credit in my online account to store purchases.Even more wonderful, the customer services representative remembered me from a previous interaction and assisted greatly with the transaction.This type of amazing service (and your wonderful clothes of course) brings me back to your store each and every time I am in New Zealand - which is unfortunately usually only once a year.Thank you again for the wonderful people you have working at the Takapuna Branch, and in Customer Services.Kindest regards Brigitte




Customer Love - Taupo 18 11 16

On a recent trip to Taupo my sister and I called into your shop and we were both made to feel very welcome and encouraged to browse with helpful suggestions etc. We returned in the morning with our Mum who also needed an outfit for an upcoming wedding. After nearly an hour we left with two beautiful garments as well as the hints to wear the wraparound dress in some of its many options. Elsa





Customer Love - Newmarket 14 11 16

Hi, just wanted to let you know I shopped at your Newmarket store today and WOW! What a couple of lovely ladies working there. They were super helpful and knew exactly what I needed for an occasion. I bought a lovely dress, very happy, will definitely be back Thanks so much  Sandy






Customer Love - Tauranga 10 11 16

I would just like to say what wonderful service I have received from your Tauranga branch. Whilst in town with my husband a couple of weeks ago I had popped in to look at a dress that I saw on display through the door and the assistant explained that yes it would suit my body shape very well. 

After trying the dress on and finding it was a perfect fit the assistant offered to order in the cream colour that I wanted from Wellington – not only did she do that for me but she had it delivered direct to my house (she said it would arrive Tuesday and it did!) and it was wrapped in beautiful tissue paper with a nice little note.  

The overall service made me feel very special and was a pleasant shopping experience that I shall remember every time I wear the dress. Please pass on my congratulations o both ladies who assisted me on the 2 occasions for their excellent customer service and assure them that I will be back for future purchases  :-)




Customer Love Devonport 09 11 16

I live in Devonport and I just love popping in to your store and looking through what you have on the hangers. Sometimes I am just looking, nothing more, but Lyuba always makes me feel so welcome and that just looking is fine (although I have bought quite a few things too!!). I would just like to say that I think that Lyuba is GREAT!! So friendly and helpful.





Customer Love - Christchurch 03 11 16

I was privileged to accompany my friend to your store to look for an outfit for her son’s wedding. Whilst there, we were attended to by a staff member who was professional, helpful, and honest, she was attired appropriately  and reflected the stores garments really well.  My friend had never been in the store before and it was my second time, and we found it clean, tidy, personalised, and had some small items for children to amuse themselves with. Both of us were extremely impressed by the staff, the atmosphere and the variety of stock,  Pat 




Thumbs up to Sonia at Annah Stretton. On a recent visit to your beautiful town in the hope of purchasing a Mother of the Bride dress, I was so impressed by the service given right from the moment I entered the store. Sonia made me feel so very special and went the extra mile. This store must be so proud to have this lovely lady on their staff, what an asset. I am so happy with my purchase and will be back.



Customer Love - Wellington 20 10 16

I just wanted someone to know what a great experience I had in your Wellington store yesterday.  I have one of my sons' wedding coming up and was somewhat nervous and uncertain about getting something to wear.  

I went in, kind of on impulse, and came out a very happy 'mother-of-the-groom-to-be' .  The lovely lady (despite being quite pregnant and probably very tired, it was nearly the end of the day) was so helpful and honest about what looked good and spent enough time with me that I came away with an outfit I am very happy with. She was cool with me calling family members and waiting for them to arrive just to check out my outfit. I had no idea it would be so easy getting the outfit. Cheers, Alison





Customer Love - Tauranga Sore 20 10 16

I want to tell you about the wonderful experience I had at your Annah Stretton store in Tauranga. Firstly, your store! It was breathtakingly feminine and welcoming. The clothes were presented in such a way that I wanted to look at every single piece! Ah! To have an unlimited budget and spend a week in here, I kept thinking. I could not stop smiling at the sheer beauty of the place. Fiona was a dream come true. Her knowledge of what suits different body styles was so much appreciated. She spent time helping me choose an Eliza coat. It is soooo gorgeous and strangers have asked me where I got it!! 

Thank you thank you… Robyn 





Customer Love - Hamilton 17 10 16

I was in your Hamilton store recently looking for something to wear to my son’s wedding, along with my future daughter-in-law.  I would just like to say what a wonderful experience we enjoyed with Joanne looking after us  - she was absolutely awesome!!  We are both really happy with the outfits we got.  So thanks Joanne - hope to visit you again sometime soon.



Customer Love - Devonport 11 10 16

WOW... at the Devonport Outlet store Lyuba was amazing and nothing was a worry.  She knew how to dress me and we had fun doing it. She was super friendly and warm.  Fashion advice excellent.   




Customer Love - Tauranga, 10 10 16

Thank you to Fiona from your Tauranga store for my styling session last Saturday. Fiona was awesome and showed me how to look fabulous with beautiful clothes and accessories. It was such a fun and informative experience. I wish I had done it a long time ago. There was no pressure to buy but the few amazing pieces I did get now make my wardrobe more versatile. Thank you so much. 





Customer Love - Christchurch  04 10 16

 I recently visited your Colombo  Store whilst in Christchurch. It was such a pleasure to be in such a lovely environment. The staff were fantastic and I loved their creative flair and ideas. I also had my makeup done by Cara for a  function I was going to that evening. The whole experience was wonderful and I look forward to my next visit, it was definitely a highlight of my weekend. Thanks girls, I look forward to my next visit, Ronnie 



Customer Love - Ponsonby 15 09 16

Your service is outstanding! I was in the Ponsonby store and Franky was just amazing! She took time to understand what I liked and what suited me and gave me lots of ideas. I came across Annah Stretton 7 years ago in Christchurch and my first visit to that store was also a very positive experience, the shop assistant even lent me a book about Annah Stretton, very inspiring indeed!  I bought a few dresses then and still like to wear them. Also I bought a very "exciting" outfit recently in Devonport, and again the service was superb. It's just so nice to experience staff who like to go the extra mile and identify with their jobs. Well done and thanks so much to all involved! Mirjam



Customer Love - Palmerston North 12 09 19

My mum and I spent 90 minutes with Vanessa at your Palmerston North store. What an amazing lady she is!! She was super helpful and really knew her stuff. Your store is in very capable hands. Thanks Vanessa 



Customer Love - Devonport 08 09 16

Hi am Deaf and shopped in Devonport last week. I was assisted by Lyuba and received friendly, excellent service and genuine feedback. I walked away and accidentally left my sunglasses in the shop. Again Lyuba was so kind to track me down and return my glasses. Lyuba is a valuable asset for your business. thanks again Luba. Josje



Customer Love - Christchurch, 05 09 16

Over the weekend my sister and I had such wonderful service from your staff at the Colombo Store that I wanted you to be aware of what a great asset they are to your company. We were both served on two different days by Angela and Anna K. Their working in partnership and unison is a sight to behold. Each bringing the knowledge and skills to ensure that we did not just purchase a quality garment that looked good. They both have an innate way of making the garments of choice become personalised.  My sister and I (and my daughter on previous occasions) made our purchases feeling that the items had been custom made.

My sister is extremely diffident and therefore unenthusiastic about buying clothes. She left the shop on cloud 9. I have accompanied my daughter at other times and the experience at the Colombo Store is consistent. Angela and Anna have such an infectious enthusiasm for the Annah Stretton brand I hope that there is something within the company system that will recognise that they take your beautiful garments to the next level. Kind regards, Penny





Customer Love Pukekohe 25.07.2016

The salesperson helping me was Karen A

Karen is an asset to your company.  She is friendly, bright and bubbly and nothing was too much trouble. Karen dressed me up, showed me many different ways how to wear the wraparound dress I was interested in, accessorized me, and made me feel a million dollars. I was in the shop for over an hour and left feeling fabulous. Top marks, Karen, you are a delight to deal with.





Customer Love Christchurch 21 07 16

Customer Love for the Christchurch team! These girls are amazing - call into our store in the Colombo to experience their superstar service! 



Customer Love Ponsonby 10 07 16

Our lovely Ponsonby customer Louise off to the Flight Centre Ball tonight. She is wearing the Gretchen Dress in black - very elegant!



Customer Love - Hokitika. 22 06 16 

I would just like to say what an amazing lady you have working in the Hokitika Anna Stretton store. Angie has been helping me for the last 3 years plus to dress and choose clothes which suit me and look amazing on. Again today Angie picked out for me a dress which I normally would not even look at to try on and wow it looked amazing on and made me feel like a million dollars. Angie has a great eye for style and knows exactly what to put with what and how to wear clothing. Thank you for providing such wonderful staff who make a shopping experience a great pleasure.




Customer Love - Devonport 20 06 16

I have just been to your Devonport store and Lyuba was amazing. I walked out with something different and I loved it. She was so good at helping me see a different perspective, and she showed me what I could wear and I loved that. So I have a gorgeous 50's look. She made my day, and I felt wonderful. Jackie 



Customer Love - Pukekohe

Thank you and your team so much for helping me with my daughter's ball dress. The service and care has been excellent. The shop assistants in your Pukekohe store have been remarkable. So caring and just going the extra mile to make my daughter feel like a princess in her beautiful dress.



Customer Love 17 06 16

I visited New Zealand for the first time this year, and bought 3 Flipit dresses, a coat, a jacket and a cardigan!  I was so excited as I have a fuller figure, with hips, and your dresses make me feel sexy, feminine, and slimmer. I cannot find garments like this in England – so I will be ordering online, and I will be a fan forever. Scarlett.

Huge thanks to Vanessa at the Annah Stretton store in Palmerston North. Your patience, advice and style expertise are fantastic.You were great with recommending colours and a dress that could do a wedding and teenage daughters ball with a different colour slip! The service and attention to detail was 120%. I always feel so welcome in your store. Thanks again, Christine

Customer Love - Devonport 25 05 16

I had a marvelous experience shopping in your Devonport store. Luba was informative, helpful, knowledgeable - it was a pleasure spending time in the shop and buying lovely clothes to take back home to Adelaide. Whenever I visit Auckland I make sure to visit your shop and always I find a beautiful garment to buy and enjoy. My friends always want to know where I purchased such interestingly designed clothes. Thank you so much, Mirna.

Hi - this is my wedding in my Annah Stretton dress. We had a great day, and so many people have asked where I got my dress from. They loved it. Lisa



Customer Love - Whitianga 16 05 16

A note to say how much I value the help and expertise of Tina and Anna in your Whitianga store. I recently had an investiture at Government House in Wellington so the girls were invaluable in decking me out with clothes that could marry to existing accessories. I don’t have a bottomless budget for wardrobe with our lifestyle here, so really do appreciate their efforts. Congratulations on your staff selection. Good wishes, Jenny

Hi, just a message to say your staff are fabulous, I've been in touch with three stores today and each of the ladies I spoke to were obliging and knowledgeable. Great service, well trained ladies obviously not just 'turning up' for work.  Palmerston North, Wellington  and Otaki - great service/helpful all three.

I shopped at your Taupo store the other week..looking for something for a wedding..your store manager served me and was outstanding. Sonia Anderson is fantastic..her fashion flair is wonderful...her ability to listen to what I wanted and her fantastic choices not only made me feel stunning..but I had so many compliments about my outfit. I will be shopping with her again.

Tyne was married in Hokitika recently - her wedding gown and her bridesmaids dresses all purchased locally in Hokitika. Looking gorgeous in the Annah Stretton Kelsey wedding dress, with her maids in the Bethany Flipit.

Customer Love - Pukekohe

I would love to recommend and give a huge bouquet to Karen at the Annah Stetton Pukekohe for a wonderful experience in shopping. KAREN IS marvellous at demonstrating the beautiful clothes that are on sale. She is a credit to the Annah Stetton brand. I have real difficulty in finding clothes to fit me, but with the amazing flip it wraparound dress and with Karen's expertise I'm now excited about clothes again. This is a wonderful brand for all shapes. Thank you so much. Kathy



Customer Love - Taupo

I bought a jacket from your Taupo store - the sales assistant was Sonia. I just have to tell you that you have an absolute gem of a staff member there. I was only looking and ended up buying a jacket that is going to compliment my winter wardrobe wonderfully. I liked Sonja was how friendly she was, with great ideas about how to wear the clothes - she made me feel really good about my shape and knew what would work for me. She was really positive about the Annah Stretton brand. I shall be looking closer at Annah Stretton from now on and that is a direct result my experience with Sonia. Thanks heaps. Love your styles. Justine


Customer Love - Dunedin

I'm someone who doesn't really enjoy clothes shopping but when I entered your Dunedin store today I was made very welcome by Joy. A wonderfully enthusiastic woman who made my experience at Annah Stretton a pleasure and boosted my self esteem and confidence tenfold. Joy encouraged me to try on designs I'd never consider. She is an absolute treasure and asset to your shop. Thank you so much Joy and Annah Stretton ?


Customer Love - Hamilton

Never a fan of clothes shopping at the best of times, I can't tell you how grateful I am to Tammy, from the Hamilton store. She embodies all those qualities you yearn for when you walk in, not having a clue about what you want. Tammy ran a marathon to find me the perfect dress. I went to see her THREE times! She is wonderful. Patient, kind, honest, knowledgeable, willing and persistent. A superstar, with clear passion for the work she does. Thank you so much, Angela


Customer Love: Christchurch

I was greeted by lovely staff, I mentioned I was not really dressed for shopping there and I had left my 86 year old mum in the car, before you know it I was dressed had necklaces and other pretties added to the outfit and I looked very girly. Off to show mum outside - it was not long before mum was in the shop and she was treated to a front row seat and a cup of tea, (she felt rather special thank you). Your staff are a credit to you, I felt like 



12.05.2015 Customer Love - Newmarket

I recently had a surprise 40th birthday party. I was lucky enough to have already bought a gorgeous dress and shoes from your Annah Stretton Newmarket store. For my birthday surprise I was pampered on the day with hair and make-up. My hair dresser wanted to know what I would be wearing, and from my description of my new dress we went with the vintage look (with Phoenix Cosmetics) and while I was reluctant to turn 40, I did not feel vintage at all, but 40 and fabulous!




12.05.2015 - Customer Love - Invercargill!

Mum and I would like to say a big thank you to Annah Stretton for such a lovely treat on Saturday at the ‘Fabulous at Any Age Party.’ It was so nice to be greeted with a glass of bubbly, to try on some of your beautiful dresses, have our makeup done and to finish it off with a photo shoot - we felt very spoilt and very special. Danelle was great, she knew exactly what would suit us and had us trying colours and styles that we wouldn’t normally have looked at, and the Phoenix ladies gave us a lovely natural makeover. We can’t wait to see what the photos look like!

Thank you so much for the experience

Thanks so much Annah Stretton Colombo for this Opportunity, Mum and I had a great time at the Fabulous at Any age Party this weekend. It certainly was a special hour out of a busy weekend.

6.05.2015 - Customer Love for the Ponsonby Store X

I wanted to pass on very positive experience at the Anna Stretton store in Ponsonby this afternoon.

As I was wandering along Ponsonby Road I popped into the store to browse. I was very impressed with the service I received from the store manager Olivia. She was so helpful with out being pushy and offered lots of good advice re styles and colours!

Thank You!





Thank you so much Annah Stretton Fashion for the fabulous parcel I received this morning!

The glasses are just gorgeous the top is stunning & I can't wait to read the awesome book - you guys absolutely rock!



29.04.15 Kia ora

I just wanted to send a wee message to pass on my compliments about your lovely staff at the Colombo store in Christchurch. I live in Napier but regularly travel to Christchurch. When there I do love to pop in to the Colombo store and have always had the most wonderful uplifting service from Angela and Annah. 

In particular Angela's energetic, up beat style which really suits me and I always come away, whether I have purchased or not, feeling fantastic about myself and my style. Her advice is honest and up front and a trip to Annah S Colombo is always a highlight of my Christchurch visits.



Fabulous shopping experience with Olivia 
Olivia was extraordinarily friendly - remembering me from 2 years ago! I ended up buying way more than I planned to because she suggested some beautiful clothes to try on. Two of the things I wanted were not available in my size but she immediately found them at the Palmerston North store and by the time I returned home they had arrived by courier.

Very happy client right here and when I return to Ponsonby in the future I truly hope Olivia will be there to help me with my shopping once again.

Great work and thanks Olivia!!




From the moment I walked into the Hamilton Store, and Sabine was delightful with a smile, her willing to help and also calling me by my name. I had looked at a couple of dresses that I thought I would try on and they did not suit my body type and Sabine said to show her once I tried them on so she could tweek it as bit, but actually was embarrassed because I got the totally wrong thing for my shape.  She had picked up that I must have liked the lace look by what I was trying on.  I said oh thy don’t look good on me.  She said that they were not the right colour for my skin tone or shape and that is why and then came it with something for me to try which was lace and a beautiful red.  I tried this on and walked out of the changing room with confidence and Sabine said that looks stunning dressed it up with a belt and I straight away said I would take it.  She made my day and I walked out so happy.

 At my work we pride ourselves with customer service and it was great getting this myself as a customer.  Not often do you get the service to Sabine’s level.  I will definitely be back to see Sabine again soon



Customer Love - Christchurch

Tanya looked gorgeous in the Rosie Buddha Dress for her surprise wedding the other day. She had her makeup done by Jack at Phoenix.



I walked into your Christchurch shop yesterday, and because of your absolutely fantastic Lady Angela - I walked out with the Didion Wedding Dress.

PLUS I already have a Wedding Dress, so I really was not even contemplating looking. But Angela suggested I should try a dress on – then styled me completely - absolutely fantastic!! You have a real gem in her.  

Don't get me wrong your dresses are absolutely beautiful, but no way would I have ever dreamt of purchasing a dress from your store. It is because of Angela taking the time, and styling the outfit, that I bought the dress.  

She is a Star!
