Terms & Conditions

 Your dancewear choice/s 

Couture Costume Dancewear is custom made & chosen by you.  Once paid for we can accept no change of mind for material/fabric and style.  We have provided a very thorough sizing chart so please choose your size carefully before ordering. If your dancewear is too small or doesn't fit properly, please contact us, we will do the best we can to rectify the problem for you. Couture Costume Dancewear is a small business which caters to personal choices.  We love that you can have your own choice of dancewear but we cannot guarantee that someone won’t select the same combination.


Costume Conversion

If a set of costumes is ordered via Couture Costume Dancewear, we reserve the right to refuse an order if there is a conflict of interest between clients of Couture Costume by Karina Doig.


Fabric availability

Couture Costume Dancewear maintains business relationships with reliable and reputable suppliers for materials, fabrics and haberdashery.  However we cannot guarantee that every fabric shown on our website is available at the time of purchase.  If you have ordered a fabric which has become unavailable we will make contact with you and discuss a time frame and/or a suitable second choice.

Our popular staple fabrics like Black Supplex, Lining & Black/White Matte or Shiny Spandex are likely to become unavailable for long periods of times due to supply & demand issues out of our control. In order to keep things moving; we purchase these fabrics from a number of different suppliers to keep them stocked for you; this means there can be some slight differences in colour across different suppliers, however we reserve the right to provide any fabric that is closest in colour & quality without prior notice unless it is deemed absolutely necessary (like matching a set of already costumes etc). 

Thank-you for your understanding.
