“Needle Point showcased a collection that made me smile. The collection was a combination of Ankara and glitter. If Zara would work with known designers in future time, I’d definitely recommend Needle Point.” – Abina (abinaonline.com).
“I loved almost every piece from their latest collection! From the design, to the quality, to the fabrics used. Just fabulous pieces! The audience certainly agreed, as Needle Point got the most applause and even a standing ovation when the designer herself graced the catwalk at the very end” – Cheap & Cheerful Shopper (cheepandcheerfulshopper.com).
