Deposit/size TBC

If you have made a deposit towards a dress and the fabric has been ordered, this fee is non refundable.

If we have not ordered your fabrics, we can give you 100% refund. Please note, our company policy is to order fabrics immediately when we receive an order. This is because of fluctuating stock/price levels especially during the busy summer months.

Discounts/Promotions/Offers

Any discounts/offers and promotions we may have cannot be applied to alterations or be-spoke items. Always read the Terms and conditions for that specific offer. 

Sizing

All dresses are made-to-order in UK sizes 8-14. They are not custom-made according to your measurements and almost always require some alterations to fit perfectly. Alterations are not included on the price in our standard size dresses. For sizing information, we suggest you check our size chart, located as a tab on each item in our shop area. Please note, the measurements are not garment measurements. They are body measurements.

If you are between sizes, we suggest you order larger size, as a dress can easily be altered down, but rarely altered up. Minna is not responsible for inaccurate size ordering, or an incorrect size due to a customers change in size during dress production.

Alternatively, you can choose our popular "Alterations" option, for more information, see below.

If you have visited our showroom in London and have tried on our samples, please be aware that the showroom samples have been tried on multiple times, dry cleaned and they have been on a hanger so some stretching of the fabric might have taken place, which will sometimes slightly change the fit of the sample dress. The fabrics of the sample dresses will also appear softer as this is due to dry cleaning and natural softening of the fabrics.

 

Care instructions

Please wash and look after your garment as instructed. All our items are dry clean unless otherwise labelled. When you have received your dress, we would advise you against hanging it as this might stretch the delicate fabric. In our experience lying it flat to store it and gently steaming the fabric before use is the best option. Please note that most of our fabrics ( especially Scottish lace ) are very delicate so pay attention when wearing jewellery and carrying handbags. We are not responsible for any damage to the items after they have been shipped.

 

Alterations/Customisation

This option allows you to change the design with some alterations options. Please note that for any bigger changes, fitting may be required. These charges do not apply to finished items.  You must discuss about any changes during the fitting and before the dress has been made. Due to a huge amount of work to alter finished product, different charges will apply.  If you have any questions, please email us on minna@minna.co.uk

Please note, these charges do not apply to fully finished dresses.

Options explained:

Extra Minor alterations:
-Changing the length of the dress/skirt/sleeves. This can be shortening or minor lengthening.  

Charge: £50

Minor alterations/changes, no fitting included/required, ONE change only:
-Sleeve/dress/lining length shortening/adding some length. Please note, there might be a separate charge for added length due to increased cost of fabric needed.

When making minor alterations we require you to take some measurements. We are happy to help you how to take the most accurate measurements but if you feel unsure, it is always best to find a qualified person to do that. If you can visit our London showroom, we are more than happy to take your measurements. Please read our "Alterations terms and conditions, before choosing the alterations option.

Alteration terms and conditions

If you have chosen a custom-made alterations option, the dress will be done according to your sepecification.  Please note, all further alterations that are not written on the invoice, will be billed separately unless agreed beforehand. If you are unable to come for a final fitting, we check each piece with an adjustable mannequin that has your measurements prior to shipping. However, due to nature of delicate fabrics, your dress might still require some small alterations. If you can come and see us in London, we are happy to do the final adjustments. If you are unable to come for a final fitting, we will not be able to do any final adjustments without seeing you, unless this is a straightforward shortening the length of the dress/sleeves. Minna is not liable to pay for any alterations done elsewhere. If you have any questions about this, please email us minna@minna.co.uk

Minna is not responsible for inaccurate size ordering, or an incorrect size due to a customers change in size during dress production. It is your responsability to provide us correct measurements or order a correct size.

Please allow 1,5-3cm variation for hemline length. The fabric will naturally drop few cm during production. We do try to minimise this as much as we can but most of the time it is out of hands.

Minna is not responsible for inaccurate size orders/measurements due to weight loss/gain. We are not liable to make any alterations if your measurements have changed and we have not been notified.

Please note, if the measurements have been taken by someone outside Minna, we are not liable to make any alterations/changes to the item.

 

Fittings

All further alterations, changes and fit of the dress MUST be communicated during the fitting. Any changes that are not communicated 24 hours after the fitting, cannot be taken into account unless agreed by Minna. Any changes beyond that will be billed separately.

 

Be-spoke dresses

All be-spoke dresses require a consultation in our London studio. Our prices start from GBP 1800 for dresses. Be-spoke dresses must be paid in full before we start work. Please read the invoice as this will form a contract between ourselves and the customer and will explain what the price includes. All changes/fit of the dress to the item MUST be communicated during the fitting. Any changes that are not communicated 24 hours after the fitting, cannot be taken into account unless agreed by Minna. All custom-made dresses are non-refundable.
