Anne Corbett owner of Anne of Craicor:
I have been in the fashion industry all my working life and have a wealth of knowledge I happily share with my staff and customers.
Whilst working for Bendon-Berlei in 1971 I trained as a corsetiere, and over the years have become very experienced in fitting bras, surgical garments, prosthesis, and swimsuits. My staff are all trained corsetieres.
At Anne of Craicor we listen and translate your needs, providing you with professional advice. Regardless of age, shape and size we can fit you with bras and underwear. Fittings are free and our customers are encouraged to take advantage of this service. With fashions and body shapes constantly changing, correctly fitting lingerie is a sound investment in achieving the best possible shape and look.
Would you believe that seven out of ten women wear the wrong size bra!
The fashion market has become global presenting our market with a mass of new influences. It is my trained eye that can pick out the best fitting garments for my customers. I import Freya and Fantasie bras from England beautiful garments for the fuller figure. I stock Triumph, Sloggi, Berlei, Jockey and Fayreform including Sports and Maternity bra options.
My nightwear ranges feature many 100% cotton garments. Cotton or Silk have to be the best fabrics to sleep in. I am a fan of the Arianne range imported from Canada and the New Zealand made Essence and Zenza garments. Baksana robes and P.J’s from Turkey and Pierre Cardin gowns, complete this department.
My loyal customers consider my shop as a “one stop shop “where they can create a new wardrobe, from the foundation layers to the outer fashion garments update their nightwear and purchase swimwear.
A passion of mine is swimwear. l have sold swimwear for over thirty years and knows what styles best suit the various figure types. I have scoured the world for the best labels, and import Fantasie and Freya swimwear from England, and Sunflair from Germany. I also stock the Australian brands Seafolly and Togs and New Zealand designs Femme de la Mer and the iconic label Moontide. I order new ranges throughout the year, so those ladies following the sun in our winter can find the latest European styles and colours.
When visiting my store you will find a pleasing colourful selection of outerwear fashion. When I am buying I keep in mind our lifestyle in Northland and choose smart casual garments that will cover many occasions. My staff offer personal assistance, please take advantage of this to enhance your shopping experience. They know my stock, select well, and can help you find garments that fit properly and flatter your natural figure. My customers are my best form of advertising. I need you to look fabulous and confident. I get great delight to think you can say “I bought this from Anne of Craicor”.
