All fabrics are tested for Colour fastness and therefore the Company will only replace garments that run if a whole batch of fabric is faulty. Individual washing problems are not a fault of manufacture. Please ensure you read the directions for washing carefully and follow them exactly to keep your garments in good condition. Foiled fabrics such as Shimmers are created for their aesthetic value and are great for visual performance. However they do dull with wear and have a short life span, it is the nature of the fabric and cannot be guaranteed.

VAT

The VAT laws in the UK are such that VAT has to be added to all garments produced for young people aged 14 and over. This being the case we have arranged our sizing chart with sizes up to the age stated ie size 14 is recommended for children up to the age of 14. Children’s sizes are zero rated for VAT purposes and therefore appear cheaper. The larger sizes are marked as Adult sizes, the prices of which include VAT. All orders made for the UK or the European Union are subject to these VAT regulations and are priced accordingly. VAT is charged at the current rate and is subject to change with the UK regulations.
