If you need to cancel an appointment, Arnavaz Lindsay Couture requires up to 48 hours notice. Failing to do so you will incur a fee of $25.
If the client requires Arnavaz Lindsay to take their individual body measurements, please note that to get accurate readings of body measurements it is ideal for a client to be in their undergarments. If this is not possible or the client does not feel comfortable doing so, the client is required to wear close fitting clothing such as leggings and a tank top/leotard.
At all fittings including taking individual body measurements, the client is required to bring along the actual shoes that will be worn with the final bespoke piece. If the actual shoes are not available, a shoe that is close to the height of what will be worn with the final bespoke piece is required.
All appointments are held at Arnavaz Lindsay Couture design studio at either Taringa or Ashgrove in Brisbane Qld
As apart of the design process, Arnavaz Lindsay supplies a individual body measuring service. If you do not require Arnavaz Lindsay to measure you or you want to supply your own measurements, Arnavaz Lindsay takes no responsibility if these measurements are incorrect. For those clients who do take their own measurements please take them over your undergarments for accuracy.
Please inform us at the time of consultation if you plan weight loss, weight gain or pregnancy.
If there are any significant weight loss or weight gain during the course of the construction process, an additional fee will be charged for every time an adjustment to the fitting needs to be made.
