Hit & Miss but great when it's a Hit
I have been ordering from Alannah Hill online for the last 12 months (most recent delivery last week). It takes a couple of weeks for the items to arrive (I'm in Sydney) and they can be hit & miss with both the item quality and customer service. I've been happy about 75% of the time and on those occasions the clothes were extremely beautiful, particularly the velvet clothing (I have a stunning black dress & a pair of dark blue palazzo pants). The three or four items I haven't liked looked poor quality in both fabric and design & I returned them.... On one occasion they delivered the wrong size but by the time I received it, they were out of stock on the correct size. On another occasion my order didn't arrive at all. I had to chase it up with them (they hadn't noticed the tracking number never left the warehouse). On yet another occasion I ordered a dress in my size successfully only to be told two days later it was out of stock. So in summary, most of the clothes are gorgeous and they add a few new items most days which sell out quickly ..... kind of drip feeding customers for some reason (possibly correct they are liquidising). So as I said, hit & miss, but I think it's worth it and continue to place orders.
Terrible customer service. Would never shop here again
Ordered a product online. It went on sale the next day. I emailed and ask if I could get the sale price as I had just purchased it the day before and it hadnt even shipped. It took them days to get back to me and informed I couldn't get the sale price but then also proceeded to tell me the product would be on sale again that day. I then asked if I could return my order, get the refund and repurchase it at the sale price and was told no.
What a joke. As a first time customer I will never shop here again. I understand pricing can change but a bit of a joke they won't even honour the price change that happened with less than 24 hours of my purchase.
Happy with my purchase.
I bought 5 items from the online store, ordered on Tuesday and it arrived on Wednesday the following week. Everything was in a single soft packing slip, wrapped in tissue paper, it was a bit crumpled but otherwise unharmed. There was also no signature required for the package which surprised me because it was a costly purchase and I would have been pretty annoyed if porch pirates got it (a problem in my area) - I would happily pay more for better shipping.
The products were beautiful and fit perfectly - just how I imagined.
Beware of shopping online at this store
Ill-fitting, poor quality fabric, frustrating and incredibly unresponsive for information and returns. They simply do not care. I have seen a marked deterioration in both the range (most of it is just the same styles rehashed with different details) and quality. Incredibly hard to exchange and you will only get a revolving door of online credit and rubbish clothes. I have basically lost 600 bucks.

I went to the Alannah Hill shop at Eastland today. It was the 1st time I had visited this shop or purchased this brand. I was served by the mist delightful and helpful young lady. She was helpful in getting me to try on numerous dresses and nothing was too much trouble. She was cheerful and friendly but also knowledgeable and professional. What an asset this young lady is to your business. Cheers Ruth
Love the clothes, Pity about the service
I've received my order which I love all the clothes just 1 dress doesn't suit.
I've been trying to contact via email and telephone today to receive a return authorisation number for the 1 dress, however, no body has responded all day. Even contacted the Sydney QVB Store who gave me a different number to call.. tried that and the number isn't even connected! Leave for a 5 week holiday overseas on Sunday and now stressing that I'll be stuck with a dress I won't be able to return when I get back.(unless of course, I travel 1 hour to the CBD tomorrow and hope there's something in store I can swap for as they won't refund or provide a credit). I agree that the 3 months validity for a credit voucher is unacceptable.
Happy with service
Purchased online, returned requesting size change. Received voucher for online use only expiring in three months as product not available. It was still in stock and upon contacting Alannah Hill they apologised and made arrangements to send the exchange item. Very happy, worked out well
Love the clothes but online postage time leaves a lot to be desired.
Love the brand and the designs, but every time I make an online purchase I have to wait for it to be shipped from Perth. Why is this? It takes up to two weeks to arrive to me in Victoria. I don't know why Victorian orders can't be shipped from Melbourne. Five stars for the designs and the quality, but one star for the online delivery system.
April 12th 2019 Update: OK clothing, but poor and disorganised service
I have bought quite a few items from Alannah Hill online over the last few years and when they get your order correct it's great,...but when they make a mistake which in my experience is often, the customer service is horrendous. I find I am constantly chasing them up when they make an error, with a long drawn out process before it's fixed. They give me excuses such as stock being low, or they are extremely busy. They don't seem to get they need to either fix the mistake as a priority or provide a refund. On another subject, their sizing is excessively small. In their cardigans I have to go up two sizes. Surely this is not good marketing? In my opinion Alannah Hill online has a long way to go to achieve the great customer service of others such as Country Road, Trenery, Sportscraft and The Iconic and who I purchase from regularly. If I ever get this current mistake resolved I don't think I will be shopping there again, which is a pity as I enjoy the uniqueness of their clothing.
