When Julia Roebeck-Maiava was preparing for her wedding, she came across Sewtec’s offer for their design graduates to design and manufacture custom clothing. As she needed a wedding dress, she decided to give them a try – and she was totally delighted with the results.

Julia had a team of three working on her dress – Anahera Shortland, Florence Manumalo and Leata Ngata. They created a simple but elegant two-piece design featuring hand-sewn lace on the jacket.
‘‘I felt like I was on Project Runway,’’ Julia says. ‘‘The girls were amazing. They exceeded my expectations.’

Julia was out of the country when the dress was being made. She returned from her holiday to find her wedding outfit finished and ready to wear.

More Happy Feedback

“I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing such a great job with my uniform. I know I had a lot of requests on making my uniform perfect and I admit I was a bit sceptical when Sidath said you are a trainee …. but I am 100% satisfied -:) and I have and will definitely recommend you to my colleagues, friends and family, and I promise you I will be back for you to design and sew my next outfit. If you don’t mind!”

“Thank you – I’m very happy with my garments. Excellent work and an excellent price – I will recommend your Institute to everyone that I know so they can use your service.”
