Terms and Conditions of Dress Hire

 
  • To secure a booking for the evening wear of your choice a non-returnable booking fee of £20 will be taken which will then be deducted from the hire cost.
  • On collection of your evening wear we request a deposit of up to £150, by cheque with guarantee card or cash,  which will be given back to you when the dress is returned on time and is in an undamaged condition.
  • In the event of damage to the dress, it must not be repaired by yourself.  Please do not try to wipe/clean spillages as this makes the dry cleaning process more difficult.  It is often necessary to hold the deposit until the dress returns from the dry cleaners.  In some cases if the marks prove to be stubborn and the cleaners need to repeat the cleaning process the extra charge will be deducted from your deposit.
  • We advise that you do not wear bracelets or watches etc that may catch on the evening wear and would affect the return of your deposit.
  • Dresses must be returned to the shop on date agreed.  A charge may be made for late returns.
