INFORMATION ABOUT US
Our Service and our Site are operated by Eponine Limited ("we", "our" or "us"). We are registered in England and Wales under company number 07294560 at 33a Adam and Eve Mews, Kensington, London, W8 6UG. You can contact us using the contact information on our Site. Our value added tax number is GB254247703.
Products ordered through our Service
Our Service involves the production of bespoke made-to-measure goods which are made in line with your specifications (the "Goods"). The Service begins with a consultation with you at our studio and this consultation will include us taking your measurements. The Goods will then be produced. Additional consultations involving fittings and subsequent alterations may be necessary to finalise the Goods.
In contrast to the above, for overseas clients or those unable to visit our studio, the Goods will be made to standard United Kingdom sizing in line with measurements you provide to us. You are responsible for the accuracy of measurements you provide to us.
If you place an enquiry in respect of our Service, we will provide you with a price and request payment in full upfront prior to commencing provision of the Service and production of the Goods in the form of an invoice. Making payment constitutes you placing an order with us. Once payment is received, your contract with us is formed and we will then commence provision of the Service and production of the Goods. Your contract with us will be on the basis of these terms and conditions.
Products ordered through our Site
Couture products ordered through our Site will be bespoke goods which are made in line with your order, to standard United Kingdom sizing and personalised with your initials (the "Goods").

Once payment is received, your contract with us is formed and we will then commence production of the Goods. Your contract with us will be on the basis of these terms and conditions.
Payments, for orders placed via our Site, are made directly to us, although we may use a third party processor to process the payment of your order online.

PRODUCTION AND DELIVERY
Any production and delivery times provided are estimates only and are not guaranteed. This means that you will not be entitled to cancel your order or claim compensation if your order is not produced or delivered on time.
Where the Goods are not to be collected by you and are to be delivered by us, the costs of delivery will be included in the price provided to you. Please note your responsibility for any tax and customs charges.

NO CANCELLATION RIGHTS
Products ordered through our Service
As the Goods are bespoke made-to-measure goods which are made in line with your specifications, and because we make the Goods to your specific requirements, you will not be able to cancel an order once production of the Goods has commenced.

REJECTING PRODUCTS ORDERED THROUGH OUR SITE WHERE PRODUCTS ARE FAULTY OR NOT AS DESCRIBED
You may reject your products if they are faulty or not as described.

Please email us at email@example.com to arrange return or contact us as directed in the return information we send you with your products.
Unless you elect for an exchange, we will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs. The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of products within one time period at one cost but you choose to have the products delivered within a shorter time period at a higher cost, then we will only refund you what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option. We will make any refund due to you as soon as possible. In any event, your refund will be made within 14 days of you telling us that you are rejecting the products.

METHOD OF REFUND

If we fail to comply with these terms and conditions, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of the breach of these terms and conditions or negligence, up to the amount of the purchase price you paid for the order applicable to your claim (this being the cap of our liability to you in respect of any losses arising under or in connection with your order and contract, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise).
However, we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if it is an obvious consequence of a breach or if it would reasonably be contemplated by you and us at the time of your purchase.
We only supply products for private use. You agree not to use the Goods for commercial or re-sale purposes and we have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under a contract that is caused by events outside our reasonable control (a "Force Majeure Event").

- Non-performance by suppliers or subcontractors.
If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these terms and conditions, or if we or do not enforce our rights against you, or delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you or that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we waive a default by you, this will only be done in writing, and will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
Each of the paragraphs of these terms and conditions operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
