MY FAVOURITE DESIGN IS SOLD OUT - WILL IT COME BACK AGAIN?
All of PRETTIE LANES' designs are limited editions. Once sold out (non-reorderable product), a design will never come back in exactly the same
style. However, a similar design might come back in a different colorway/fabric in the future. Some products appear as "sold out" but have the marking "reorderable" - in this case, the
current product is re-produced and will be restocked soon. Each garment and product at PRETTIE LANES is handmade and limited edition. If a product is marked "sold out" and "non-reorderable" this
item is gone forever and won´t be restocked in the future.
CAN I RETURN ITEMS?
You surely have a right of return on third-party products, standard size items and hats.
Excluded from this right of return are: made-to-measure clothing and any customized items, jewellery, true vintage items. If you want to return an item it has to be returned insured and at your cost. Your payment will be refunded (excluding initial shipping costs) within 30 days after your package was received and only if the items are in the condition they were sent with all tags still attached. For further details and deadlines, please see my 'General Terms and Conditions' or my Shipping & Returns - section.
CAN I ORDER CUSTOM CLOTHING?
PRETTIE LANES does not take any more clients for individually designed garments.
Red Carpet? Evening event?
The inhouse and second brand under the umbrella of PRETTIE LANES - „Franziska Schlupski“ - assists you with all inquiries about luxury evening couture. 100% Handmade to your measurements in Switzerland.
Please note: PRETTIE LANES does not offer reproductions on true vintage Designer pieces. We appreciate and after all value the work of other artists/designers and the time and effort they put into creating a garment. Hence, Designer Franziska Schlupski is not willing to simply 'copy' a design from someone else as this is not the approach as an artist nor as a business woman.
