Design consultation and fabric
For example using the made to measure dress price above for the dress. The fabric print is £50 per meter. how many meters depends on the dress style but that will easily be calculated. lets go with four meters for this so there would be an additional £200 to the cost. after the first free consultation any design work I will charge £25 hour for my time
As stated there are many factors to consider, so please get in touch I offer a 30 minute free consultation once you have an idea
If you are a dab hand at tailoring/dress making then you can submit your idea and design
If I like what you plan to do and it encapsulates the the BuStopia concept you can purchase any type of fabric and print at £50 a meter.
I can change the basic colour to suit you specifically to make it even more unique.
Any additional fabric design beyond the basic print, such as a stencil pattern will need to be discussed and will be an additional £25 per hour in its creation
Here are conditions of purchase
If I’m happy for some one to purchase or make a garment from my fabric there are some conditions. They’re not absolute . It’s just that the design is more than just a pretty pattern so I would like that acknowledge particularly when in a social media post. I also don’t want my art associated with any particular political or religious ideology… if it’s in respect of mental health then that’s ok. Also I would like to see the final product.
I’d like the garment to be photographed worn or not , and images available to me for promotional purpose. I’m ok with proper photo shoot to mobile phone snaps
You may promote and distribute images of the garment as you wish as long as there’s some reference to my fabrics art story and some acknowledgment of myself the artist . That could just be a quick not saying something like ‘want to know more about the story behind this print then … ' or if you love the story then please do openly chat about it too.
You may not use the fabric in association with or to promote political or ideological beliefs. For example Fred Perry had issues with the Proud Boys and one of their shirts this group had adopted along with the Fred Perry logo. If in doubt ask me first if I'm ok with it. You may not use my fabric in association with or to promote actions or words that are abusive, hateful and violent.
Returns or refunds will only be accepted if there is a manufacturing flaw in the fabric. If the garment is made to measure there may need to be some post production alterations. Therefore refund or return can only happen regards fitting if the tailor or dressmaker has not followed the customers measurements correctly.
By purchasing my fabric or artwear you are agreeing to the above points.
I will send a Certificate of Authentication regarding the fabric to show it’s a genuine piece of fabric by myself
