Announcement   Hello and welcome to Falcieri Designs. I am a Manchester, UK based womenswear designer founded in 2012, specialising in one-off designs in statement wear, fashion, concept and bridalwear.

All my designs are unique one-offs conceived, designed and made by me in my studio, for women who want to stand out in a crowd and want to be the only one who owns 'that dress'. I make 'off the hanger' and to client requests. No two pieces are ever exactly the same and 90% of my work is open to customisation.

I specialise in soft drape fabrics that flatter any figure and are beautifully elegant. I have designed for all sizes from UK 4 to 30. Because we all deserve to look and feel a million dollars.

Many of my garments are designed with taller ladies 5ft 9in+ and are predominantly designed with multi fit in mind. Generally one gown will fit a UK 8 - 16 without alterations. I do however, offer a customisation service on all my designs so if you are shorter in height or have a different body shape I can usually make those changes at minimal extra cost.

When you buy from me you are buying British handmade every time, utilising my skills as a pattern cutter and designer and supporting British manufacturing as well as the uniqueness of an independent company. I design, cut, sew, market and package everything myself from my studio here in Manchester.

I use two sewing machines - a semi-industrial Brother, and a Janome 4-thread overlocker. I make my patterns using paper, a pencil and a French Curve.

Because I make everything myself, without robots or automated production, everything I make is slightly different and includes slight imperfections. This is because it is handmade by a human being not a factory line.

Every bag is unique. And make great Christmas gifts if you're looking for stocking fillers.
Luchious detailing on this one off clutch bag.
The drape on these dresses hangs perfectly, romanesque inspired elegance at its best.

About

Designer doing her own thing

Falcieri Designs began in July 2012 although my career history as a freelancer began years before that as a historical costume designer and maker.

After I sold all my costume stock in 2012, my business transitioned into fashion and to the design work you see today.

I have always worked alone in my studio managing my business single-handed, with no factories, or marketing companies or shops. Etsy is currently my only sales outlet.

Returns and exchange details
RETURN & REFUND POLICY

You must book a return within 5 days of receiving your goods. Costs (including agreed postage return costs) refunded in full if the product is at fault.

We recommend you thoroughly check your items upon receiving, and before disposing of any tags or packaging. Goods must be returned to us in a saleable condition, without being worn, washed, damaged or used and with tags still on.

Customised items are non-returnable or refundable.

If you would like to exchange an item or require customisation after receiving it, get in touch, and I will be happy to send out the new item upon receiving the original or arranging alterations with you for garments you have already received.

Return and exchange shipping costs are the buyer's responsibility unless the product is at fault.
Payment
If you are requesting a custom order on an existing garment, please purchase in advance, including agreed customisation costs and shipping. If you would prefer to visit for your customised fitting you are more than welcome to.

If you are requesting a customised version of an existing garment that is being made from scratch for you, costs will be agreed in advance. Usually I request a deposit in advance plus materials, with the rest payable upon completion with pre-agreed shipping costs.

Please contact me for full details for customised items as it does vary depending on your requirements, timescales, shipping area etc.
Shipping
Items are delivered 1st class, signed for with insurance within 3 days of purchase provided there are no holdups with communication or verifying details etc. If you require expediated delivery please contact me in advance of sale and costs will be found and agreed in advance.

Worldwide standard airmail is based on information provided to me by the Post Office and can never be guaranteed. If you are unsure please check with me and choose a faster more secure method if necessary. I provide accurate postage information but cannot take responsibility where the postal system has failed to uphold their delivery times. In some cases where a guaranteed service has been requested and not met by the postal service refunds may be an option but that is dependent on the policy of the postage service concerned.

TAXES AND VAT

Some countries impose import taxes/customs charges. I am not responsible for any import taxes incurred for delivering overseas. It is the buyers responsibility to pay. Please check with your import policies where possible if you have concerns about additional costs.

PACKAGING

To keep shipping costs down I recycle packaging wherever possible.

MULTIPLE ITEMS

Multiple items costs on my shipping calculator are a guide. If you are purchasing more than two items of varying weights I am more than happy to manually recheck all weights for you and recalculate based on this and increased insurance for your items. Just drop me a line in advance to check shipping costs. I am always happy to oblige and respond to queries regarding estimating shipping costs in advance!

COLLECTION OR DELIVERY IN PERSON

If it works better for you, you are more than welcome to collect directly from myself from my studio in Manchester. Alternatively, and if you are not too far away, I will deliver for petrol fees at a rate of 20ppm.
Additional policies and FAQs
In most cases customised orders will be based on the details you give me so if you provide inaccurate measurements or other information I cannot be held responsible for mistakes when I have worked to your request. I do however, try to thoroughly check for discrepancies and will be clear about what measurements I require if I am completing a customised order on your behalf.
