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.

Thanks for allowing me to wear your design💯♥️🌻

I received so many compliments and I felt like a Queen 👸🏽 Thank YOU!

When the size is right the first time👏

I love this dress it is going to be perfect for Eid 2019. I will post pictures of me wearing it on that day. The fabric is high quality and breathable the waist is snatched and it is still modest, elegant, and a true African fusion statement piece. I loved the letter from the owner, and I will definitely be shopping here again. I am a very happy customer. It is not so long that I have to wear heels either which means I have the perfect maxi look without having to get it hemmed by my local dry cleaner. International delivery was so fast with this Laviye and DHL. I didnt expect to be able to get my hands on this for another 7-10 days to be honest. What a successful online shopping experience. Abiye you're the best #blackgirlsrock #greatbusiness 😍

The best fashion design that makes me so proud of my African roots

I cannot express the joy inside me at wearing Laviye jacket with pride almost everyday at University. I am definitely going to order more items in the future
Africans in Diaspora should embrace their culture like myself.
Thanks laviye and keep up with the good work.

Stunning dress!

I’m very pleased with this dress: perfect fit, great fabric, beautiful colours . The customer service was excellent, good advise about the size and I received the dress within 3 days. Thank you Laviye!
