Announcement   Offbeat Artsy Clothing Handmade in USA | Cynthia Davis: Indie Fashion Designer |

I create handmade rustic fantasy art to wear fashion and wedding dresses. My style is tattered woodland faerie, distressed vintage-inspired and Errant Pixie Chic with a bit of Paris and French Country woven in and an overall Post Apocalyptic and Dystopian tone.

I create one of a kind wedding dresses and bridal fashion- both custom, made to order and ready to wear designs. You can find more pictures etc. on my About page.
https://www.etsy.com/shop/TatteredChicDesign/about?ref=shopinfo_about_leftnav

My Inspirations:
I'm inspired by the natural world around me and a sweet friendship with Jesus who is what my life is all about. I create designs beginning with a drawing or an image in my mind and then drape each design on a dress form. I use upcycled and vintage fabrics as often as I can and use zero-waste techniques in designing to minimize ecological damage. I do all the designing, creating , photos, shipping, etc.

About

Indie Bespoke Wedding Dresses | Dystopian Gowns | Funky Boho Fashion

I'm inspired by the natural world around me and a sweet friendship with Jesus who is what my life is all about.
I like to walk in the woods and
on the beach, sip cocoa and see old movies.
I like old houses, vintage fashion and chocolate. I love shopping in thrift stores and at jumble sales.
I have a weakness for quirky
shoes, poetry and gentle things, like tiny children and sea otters.

I'm Cynna - Cynthia Davis. I like to make things that you could dance in or walk on the beach barefoot, so I work on creating flowy floaty wispy designs that move in the wind. If you want to get married on an island or in the woods, I want the dress to look amazing and be easy to maneuver and be yourself in. I love unexpectedness and tiny bits of embellished beauty in little areas of the designs.

* I make custom gowns.
* I make one of a kind, ready to wear designs.
* I make made to order designs.

I love designing and find recreating a design over and over is tiring, so I do many designs - one time. I make lots of wedding and evening gowns. I also create one of a kind and limited edition fashion. I do a lot of eco chic - altered from vintage or upcycled clothing. I also create for new materials, both eco friendly and less so. Most of my gowns are only made once and in only a single size. Happily, most of these have a fair range of fitting room due to fabrics and ease, so they can fit a few sizes.

Everything is hand made or hand altered by me. I'm the only person involved in my shops and business - CynthiaDavisDesigns - Wispy Chic. I source fabrics and supplies to create from existing garments. I use new , upcycled and vintage fabric and garments in my designs and note in the description the upcycled components. I have allergies and make rigorous washing and drying and repeating that process a regular part of using upcycled fabrics and garments. I don't work on it until I'm sure it is as clean and as free of fragrance as possible. If I can't get it clean, I don't use it. I also do all the photos (except fashion shows), listing, emailing and package and mail everything.

I design mostly in my head and while draping on a dress form. I have a few of these in a range of sizes and also have a mannequin for displaying things like hemlines that need legs :) I have a home studio with a serger and sewing machine and a big cutting table where I do most of my designing. I keep my fabrics in big storage drawers and tubs and have a problem keeping pins from migrating to other rooms.

My Style Tantrum - Tattered Chic line is mostly one of a kind designs, and features hand draped, handmade raw edged wispy design.. It has been featured in past 'Green Wedding' eco fashion shows. I love Dystopian and Post Apocalyptic styles. Other influences are urban prairie, historically inspired, steampunk, Mrs Darcy, french country and simple tattered ethereal bits. Wispy raw edges and soft, fraying meet imaginative one of a kind designs. My fashion is romantic, mysterious and fantasy inspired with a touch of vintage inspired thrown in. I mostly create gowns and tops, but you never know what I'm working on !

Shipping
Shipping Info:
Processing: 1-8 days of payment (Custom orders vary - see listings)
Shipping: USA 1-5 days
International 1-6 weeks
Cost: Varies by country.

USA Shipping:
I ship items by USPS Priority mail - (1-5 days). I use Insurance and Signature Confirmation for US orders. This means you must be there to sign for it or you can reschedule delivery online or pick it up later at your local Post Office. I try and let you know when to expect it. I want to be sure it is delivered just to you personally and not left on a doorstep to be harmed by weather, ruined or taken.

Wedding and fragile dresses are sent USPS Priority in the USA and may occasionally be sent UPS or FedEx by special arrangement.

Your order will be mailed within 1-8 working** days of payment receipt.

I usually contact you to let you know the item has been shipped and will track the item in transit when tracking is available.

Because my items are one of a kind, I cannot always replace an item, but will work with you to try and recover them. If the item is truly unrecoverable, I'll try to work with you to give you a refund or credit for a new item or replace the item if possible with a similar item. Since most items are one of a kind, they cannot be exactly replaced.

International Shipping:

1- I do combine items to make your shipment more economical.
2- To insure your design is not crushed and to get tracking to major cities, I use Priority Mail International for international packages.
3- Insurance is included in the shipping cost.

***Currently I am unable to ship to Italy, Greece or Spain due to restrictions on fashion items. So sorry! If you accidentally purchase, I will need to refund your payment. Thanks.

EU/UK Residents:
***For now I am only accepting custom orders from EU/UK residents. I hope to fully open my shop to orders soon.

VAT - ***I'm a single USA seller unable to register for VAT collection. Please be aware that I don't collect VAT fees and you must make arrangements for your purchase individually.**** When you receive your package you are charged by your country for customs fees and taxes before you can collect the package.
Also, be aware that Customs costs for UK have risen dramatically recently and you may wish to price this before ordering. Most shipping for UK packages range from $45.00 - $50.00. ****VAT is NOT included on any EU/UK purchases, despite the words the automatic setup includes. I am NOT registered for VAT as a US small business seller.

International shipping is listed on each item and is usually USPS Priority Mail and varies between 1-6 weeks to arrive at your customs office. I am not able to predict how long customs clearance will be. Buyer is responsible for any customs fees/taxes. I am not responsible for knowing your country's import regulations or for customs related damages. I am unable to purchase Delivery Confirmation or Insurance for some international shipping and may not be able to track the shipment for many countries.

*I declare the full value of the shipment on international customs forms. Please be aware of your country's import laws and understand that as the buyer you are responsible for all taxes and duties that your package may incur.

Additional policies and FAQs
Who makes your designs?
All my designs are handmade in the USA by me - designed, created, sewn, photographed, sold and shipped by Cynna (Cynthia Davis) sometimes in the wee hours of the night.

What about allergies ?
My items are made in a non-smoking home studio with no pets. Our household is allergy sensitive, so vintage and upcycled fabrics are thoroughly washed and dried before I work on them. New fabrics are also washed.

What about raw edges ?
I try to make things that are fun and durable. Most items are machine washable and many can be machine dried. I serge items where appropriate, for durability. I use a lot of raw edges for decorative effect in my designs, usually in non-stressed areas of the design. Most of these will fray minimally and can be trimmed to neaten them. Please be sure you are comfortable with raw edges in the designs prior to purchasing them.

Do you do custom designs ?
Sometimes, if time allows. I only do my own designs or designs in my own style. If in doubt, ask !

How can I be sure the design will fit me ?
Each one of a kind gown has it's own measurements and are based on my size chart above. If you are not sure, contact me and I'll do my best to let you know. Most designs are made with a bit of give in them unless the listing states it's firm. Really, it's easier for me to get a few measurements from you (like bra size, dress size, etc.) and let you know. If the design is one you love, sometimes it can be altered to fit or created as a custom slightly different version.

Do you offer insurance for shipping ?
Yes, I send my designs with Priority Mail with signature confirmation in the USA. I also include shipping insurance.
