Fi fully reserves the right to modify, withdraw, suspend or restrict the availability of the Service or any part of it and without notice to You – for the avoidance of doubt, your order only constitutes an offer to purchase goods from us and does not form a legally binding contract until accepted by us by way of an emailed acknowledgement to the email address supplied in your registration.

  • any indirect, consequential or special loss or damage whatsoever (even if advised of the possibility of such damages);

  • any other loss or damage in an amount exceeding €50.00 (fifty Euro) in the 12 months preceding the date on which such liability arose.
  1. Delivery and Returns and General Terms

Delivery times provided to You in respect of your order are approximate only and are dependent on a number of factors outside of Fi’s control, and due to the nature of the bespoke items being ordered, are always subject to availability.

In the event that You consider the goods You have purchased are faulty or not fit for purpose in some way or, You simply change your mind then please contact Fi info@fashionofireland.ie and Fi will provide you with return instructions.

You must return the goods back direct to the Designer (using the address details provided by Fi – for the avoidance of doubt, do not return them to Fi, they must be returned to the Designer direct) within 14 days of receipt of the goods – the Designer, following inspection of the goods should follow a strict policy of repair, replace and finally, refund under the terms of the Sale of Goods and Supply of Services Act 1980 if You had sent the goods back because they were faulty.

If you returned the goods because you changed your mind about the purchase then you must pay for the cost of shipping, but, if the goods were faulty then you are not responsible for any standard delivery costs you may have paid, and you should be refunded those amounts by Fi.

Please note that You are required to take good care of the goods and You may be liable for the reduced value of goods caused by handling them beyond what’s necessary to be sure they work and are what you ordered. You should receive a refund from Fi within 14 days of cancellation, but Fi can wait to refund You until You have returned the item or have proof of return postage.

Custom/bespoke garments may be ordered from time to time with certain Designers – please contact Fi direct to discuss. Once a bespoke/custom order has been placed and paid for and subsequently processed, it cannot be cancelled unless agreed in advance and in writing with Fi who reserves the right to charge a cancellation fee – this is due to the individual nature of a custom order which cannot then readily be re-sold.

Please note that all items purchased using this Website are designed by Irish designers and mostly made in Ireland using ethical and sustainable fashion practices – as a result, the Designers may run out of stock from time to time. Fi will engage with the Designers to ensure that items are replaced as quickly as possible and will inform buyers via the Website when such items are available to purchase once more.

In the event the mediator cannot be agreed by the parties within 14 days of one party’s written request to appoint a mediator, the Dublin office of the International Centre for Dispute (“ICDR”) Resolution shall appoint a single independent mediator in accordance with the rules of the ICDR. The costs of the mediation shall be shared equally and the place of conduct of the mediation shall be Dublin, Ireland. In the event that within a period of 30 days of the appointment of a mediator, the mediator is unable to resolve the dispute, the parties may submit the matter to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Irish Courts.

  1. General, Applicable Law and Jurisdiction
