COUTURE TERMS AND CONDITIONS

These are the terms and conditions on which we, Eponine Limited (company number 07294560), supply services and products to you through our couture service (which includes our bridal couture service) (our "Service").

Please read these terms and conditions carefully before ordering as these terms and conditions will apply to any orders you place. 

By placing an order, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.  If you do not accept these terms and conditions, you should not place an order.

 

INFORMATION ABOUT US

Our Service is 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.    Our value added tax number is GB254247703.  

 

ORDERING

You may only place orders if you are at least 18 years old.  By ordering, you warrant that you are at least 18 years old and that you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts.

 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.  

 

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

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.  Accordingly, all Goods are non-returnable and non-refundable.  

 

OUR LIABILITY

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.

We do not exclude or limit our liability for: 

  1. death or personal injury caused by our negligence;
  2. fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or
  3. any liability which cannot legally be limited or excluded.

 

PERSONAL DATA

We will only use your personal information as set out in our privacy notice on our website: www.https://eponinelondon.com/policies/privacy-policy.

 

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").

A Force Majeure Event includes any act, event, non-happening, omission or accident beyond our reasonable control and includes in particular (without limitation) the following:

  1. strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action; 
  2. civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war;
  3. fire, explosion, storm, flood, extreme snow, ice, earthquake, subsidence, pandemic, epidemic or other natural disaster;
  4. impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport;
  5. impossibility of the use of public or private telecommunications networks;
  6. the acts, decrees, legislation, regulations or restrictions of any government; or
  7. non-performance by suppliers or subcontractors.

 

WAIVER

 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.

  

SEVERABILITY

 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.

 

ASSIGNMENT

 We may transfer our rights and obligations under any contract with you to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these terms and conditions.  You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms and conditions to another person if we agree in writing.

 

ENTIRE AGREEMENT

 These terms and conditions and any document expressly referred to in them represent the entire agreement in relation to the subject matter of any contract and supersede any prior agreement, understanding or arrangement between you and us, whether oral or in writing.

 

THIRD PARTY RIGHTS

 No one other than a party to these terms and conditions shall have any right to enforce any of these terms and conditions.

 

LAW AND JURISDICTION

 Any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with your order and resulting contract or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) will be governed by the law of England and Wales.  Any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with such contract or its formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be subject to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
