Damage

Normal wear and tear is considered minor stains which can be removed in dry cleaning, small seam rips, missing beads and sequins, stuck zippers. If you return a product and it is damaged beyond normal wear and tear then you agree that we shall charge you, and you will pay, for the price of repairing the product or if the product is unable to be repaired you agree to pay up to the full retail value of the dress (as listed on our website).

Last minute/Same day hire

Any last minute or same day hires (organised manually due to the event date being within 4 business days) will be subject to a $25 fee that is billed to the customer’s invoice.
