Shop Online

Please note, I will be based in the London area for most of March. Please ensure orders are placed before 1st March to ensure delivery before I leave as I will be unable to fulfill orders whilst I am away.

About My Shop

Most of the items listed here are unique samples and one-off creations. I rarely make duplicates but I can custom design in other colours or sizes where required and where possible.

My fabrics are often sourced from limited run stock, end of line or from vintage old stock. Usually, when it's gone, it's gone! This is is why I allow for customisation wherever possible.

Originally my creations were only on sale through Etsy and whilst you can still buy a limited range of items through my shop here many of my garments will only be available through my website.

Sizing And Alterations

Due to the nature of these products there may be imperfections or non standard sizings involved. If you are interested in a product please enquire regarding sizing if you have any concerns. Most of my dresses are designed with women 5ft 10ins plus in mind. Therefore if you are shorter they can very easily be rehemmed to your desired length.

I have added measurement details to listings but many accommodate a range of sizes so please check individual listings. 

Many items can be altered within reason or designs reproduced as private commissions. Please ask in advance if a garment you are interested in has the capacity for alterations and I can advise. I am a professional alterations expert with plenty of experience so if it's possible, we can do it!

In most cases customised orders will be based on the details you give me so if you provide inaccurate measurements I cannot be held responsible for mistakes when I have worked to your request. I do however, try to thoroughly check for discrepancies and will be clear about what measurements I require if I am completing a customised order on your behalf and I will query anything that doesn't look right or I feel needs double checking.

Manufacture And Ethical Sourcing

I make everything myself by hand in my studio. Nothing is made using a factory except the base fabrics which I source online and through local suppliers from dead stock or factory offcuts. If you have any queries about fabrics or manufacture please contact me and I will do my best to answer your questions.

Bird wings for millinery and real leather are sourced as a by-product from the food industry or from natural death and not killed for fashion. I rarely use real leather but when I do I source from ethical suppliers and as food industry by products. I never use real fur.

Shop Policies

PAYMENT:

If you are requesting a custom order on an existing garment, please purchase in advance once you have discussed customisation in advance to ensure it is possible. If you would prefer to visit for your customised fitting you are more than welcome to. Any alteration costs should be agreed in advance and payment sent separately or added to the existing Paypal order at the time of purchase.

If you are requesting a customised version of an existing garment that is being made from scratch for you, costs will be agreed in advance. Usually I request a deposit in advance plus materials, with the rest payable upon completion with pre-agreed shipping costs.

Please contact me for full details for customised items as it does vary depending on your requirements, timescales, shipping area etc.

POSTAGE

Postage is calculated to ensure accurate postage and packing costs, insurance and swift delivery of your item worldwide. I will happily combine items into single packages and recheck costs for the best price and I will ship anywhere in the world.

Items that do not require alteration are sent within 3 days of purchase provided there are no holdups with communication or verifying details etc. If you require expediated delivery please contact me in advance of sale and costs will be found and agreed in advance.

Delivery times are based on information provided to me by the Post Office and can not be guaranteed although largely items do arrive in time. If you are unsure please check with me and choose a faster more secure method if necessary. I provide accurate postage information but cannot take responsibility where the postal system has failed to uphold their delivery times. In some cases where a guaranteed service has been requested and not met by the postal service, refunds may be an option but that is dependent on the policy of the postage service concerned.

TAXES AND VAT

Some countries impose import taxes/customs charges. I am not responsible for any import taxes incurred at point of entry for delivering overseas. It is the buyers responsibility to pay any additional costs on receipt of their item. Please check with your import policies where possible if you have concerns about additional costs.

PACKAGING

To keep shipping costs down I recycle packaging wherever possible.

MULTIPLE ITEMS

Costs for shipping are for single items only. If you are purchasing more than two items of varying weights I am more than happy to manually recheck all weights for you and recalculate based on this and increased insurance for your items. Just drop me a line in advance to check shipping costs. I am always happy to oblige and respond to queries regarding estimating shipping costs in advance.

COLLECTION OR DELIVERY IN PERSON

If it works better for you, you are more than welcome to collect directly from myself from my studio in Manchester. Alternatively, and if you are not too far away, I will deliver for petrol costs at a rate of 20ppm.

RETURN & REFUND POLICY

You must book a return within 5 days of receiving your goods. Costs (including agreed postage return costs) refunded in full.

We recommend you thoroughly check your items upon receiving, and before disposing of any tags or packaging. Goods must be returned in a saleable condition, without being worn, washed, damaged or used and with tags still attached.

Customised items are non-returnable and non-refundable.

If you would like to exchange an item or require customisation after receiving it, get in touch, and I will be happy to send out the new item upon receiving the original or arranging alterations with you for garments you have already received.

Return and exchange shipping costs are the buyer's responsibility unless the product is at fault.
