Asia Fashion Wholesale : Here’s my haul from Asia Fashion Wholesale (AFW)! *Ratings are based on the quality, the price and how much I like the item. When reviewing, I keep in mind how much I paid for the item and if the material/workmanship (a few loose threads are not a problem to me) is worth it.
Then, I think about whether the item is actually wearable. The original stock photos are on the left and my photos are on the right* UPDATED: I’m 161cm (5′ 3″)
I have been looking for a long-sleeved, off-shouldered sweater for a while now and was about to buy this exact same one on eBay, when I spotted it on AFW. Good thing I waited because the one on eBay was much more expensive.
Review: This sweater looks exactly like the picture. The material’s just okay. It’s very light and thin which makes it very comfortable to wear. I’ll have to wear a vest inside, though. It’s supposed to be loose-fit, so no problems with the sizing.

Review: This lace maxi dress looks pretty much like the picture. Pretty good material. The lace is quite pretty. It has an inner lining although I’m not sure why it stops just below the knee. The dress itself reaches just above my ankles. Personally, I would have preferred it to be a bit longer.
The Top Part Is Stretchable So No Problems With the Sizing
One complaint though is that due to the packing, the feathers were crumpled and doesn’t look quite as nice as it should. Also (not really a complaint, but more of a personal preference), the straps do not come with any buckles. You’re meant to tie it on your own, but I’m always worried about straps like that coming undone.
Review: This maxi dress looks pretty much like the picture. Very good material. It has an inner lining which stops below the knee. I’m not sure how tall the model is, but for me, the dress itself falls above my ankles.
It would have been prettier if it were just an inch or two longer. The top part is stretchable so no problems with the sizing.
Not sure why the dress looks quite short in the picture, but in real life, the length is fine.
Review: This lace cream dress looks exactly like the picture. Decent material. The dress is supposed to be a little bit flowy, so the fitting is fine.
One complaint is that the inner lining is too short. It’s also a bit sheer.
This dress is SO pretty!
Review: This red polka-dotted vintage style dress is exactly like the picture. Very good chiffon-y material. Very flowy, very comfortable. The waist and sleeves are stretchable and fits me well.
One complaint is that the inner lining is too short. I may have to wear a happy slip (*high five* to those who know what I’m talking about) underneath.
Oh my God, I LOVE this dress! Yes, it’s basically the same as the dress above, only with long sleeves.
Review: This green polka-dotted vintage style dress is exactly like the picture. Very good chiffon-y material. Very flowy, very comfortable. The waist and cuffs are stretchable and fits me well.
This is the most dissapointing out of the bunch.
Review: This pink tulle skirt looks pretty much like the picture. The satin material inside is very comfortable and the tulle outside isn’t the stiff, itchy kind. The waist, though stretchable, is a little bit tight on me, but not too uncomfortable.
However, the skirt is kind of sheer even with the satin lining inside. Another major complaint is that the skirt has sewing defects. Please refer to the picture below.
The seams are inside-out!! And there are 3 seams!! It is quite noticeable, but still wearable, I suppose. It’s still a defect, nonetheless. I docked off quite a lot of marks for that.
This is how they packed the clothes. Each piece is in its individual plastic wrapper. No frills, but that’s fine with me considering how ridiculously cheap the prices were. The package took nearly two weeks to arrive, but that’s normal considering it’s posted all the way from China (to the UK).
All in all, I’m very happy with my purchases. Nearly everything was exactly what I had expected (I must add I’ve very reasonable expectations) and the quality of the items aren’t too bad at all. For the price I paid, I really only have good things to say about AFW.
