Photo Shoot Ready

I really wanted at least 3 of the dresses on the site, but I am not disappointed with the skirt I purchased. I am surprised this is a UK company because I am in the States and from the time I ordered to when my product arrived was all of 3 days. I am not saying it will be that fast for you, but it was for me. Package was professional and the item was as beautiful as the photo online. I am 5'1" with a 26" waist, my mother is 5'5" with 35" waist, I ordered UK8/USA 4, and the skirt fit us both.

I love it!!

I loved this skirt and headscarf I purchased from you guys!! Keep up with the amazing work and quality! All the best for 2019

Christmas gift

Pros - this is a beautiful skirt. I actually wanted to keep it for myself but it was a gift for my sister. She loved it! I was surprised at how quick the skirt was shipped especially since I’m in the US and this company is based in the UK. I will order from them again for muself.

Con- the constant email asking for a review was a bit much.

Beautiful fabric, lovely skirt

I was invited to an African themed party and this skirt was perfect for it. It drew a lot of compliments. Fabric is very striking and not something one would easily find elsewhere. Delivery very prompt, it arrived in less than 58 hours after ordering without having to pay a premium for delivery .
The skirt was just a little bit long (I am 5’8 and ordered a size 12) but otherwise perfect.

Marcia skirt

My purchase is beautiful and I love it, however, at 5ft 5 inches I feel I have to be another 5 inches taller for me to keep the detail at the hemline.
The essence of the skirt and your other items are the designs and patterns, they're beautiful. I planned to wear it to my graduation ceremony in April, but it may have to be altered therefore removing the whole pattern detail at the hemline.
How can I get around this?
May possibly use the excess fabric as a head wrap.
Is there any way you could advise me?
Your advice would be appreciated.

Thank you


Received my jacket and wore it the same day. The fit was perfect and I love the vibrant colors.

Love Love!!

I wore this outfit for my uni fashion show and it was absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much Yvonne and everyone at L’Aviye! 💚


I really felt very special in this outfit and shared your website details with lots of women!

Beautiful dress and true to size. Can’t wait to wear it to an event next month.
