Unique Fashion for a Unique Lifestyle!

Firelight Fashions is the manifestation of a dream! Nathan started his journey into fashion design several years ago as a entertainer creating his own unique costumes. After a while he began making unique items for his friends and loved ones as well. When he injured his back a few years ago he was unable to perform for several months. Desperate for a creative outlet, he threw himself into sewing head first and has now found a passion for continually creating entirely unique designs!
The selection you see here is only a sampling of the amazing work he's done, and barely a glimpse at the myriad of unique creations he has swimming around in his head waiting to become manifest!
With help from many amazing people Nathan has gone from a small time sewing hobbyist to a full fledged designer, complete with his own team of professional models, photographers, and more.
Nathan's latest accomplishment is his newly opened boutique in Tempe, Arizona! Called The Flow Shop this amazing boutique is a collaboration between Nathan and his best friend David! The shop carries all the Firelight Fashions original apparel, hand made right on site, as well as every flow toy, fire dancing prop, and hula hoop you could imagine!

Everything in this store is made by myself, Nathan, and you can feel free to contact me with any questions you have!

Returns and exchanges
I understand that sometimes orders just don't come out to be exactly what you thought they would be and I like to take every necessary step I can to keep your business and your happiness!

If for some reason you would like to exchange or return an item please write me and let me know so we can make arrangements. I will refund or exchange pieces for you if you contact me within 10 days after you receive the item. I will not refund shipping costs and you will have to pay for return shipping as well. Some customized pieces I will not refund. If you are concerned about the need to possibly refund a custom item ask me before placing the order to be sure I'm willing to do this.

If you want to exchange a piece you will need to pay for shipping the first piece back to me and pay to ship the new piece to you as well. If the exchange is due to a major personal error on my end (like shipping you the wrong item or making a black piece when you asked for a white one) I will take responsibility for my mistake and cover the costs to correct it.

I am a very open communicator. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have!
I currently accept Paypal and credit cards through Paypal as well as etsy payment. If you would prefer to arrange another payment option please contact me and discuss the details. I am open to other options.
All shipping within the United States is done with USPS Priority shipping. It comes with a tracking number and $50 insurance. It will arrive to you 2-3 days after I ship.

International orders are always shipped 1st class. If you'd like me to ship Priority please let me know and I will create a custom order for you with the higher shipping cost added, typically an extra $10.00-$30.00 depending on the weight of the item and the destination. This is not a fee from me, just the normal cost for tracking and insurance service at the post office for international orders.
International shipments typically take 2-3 weeks. However I have no control over International Customs and cannot guarantee a delivery date.

If the address provided to me when you place your order is not correct and the package is returned to me it will be your responsibility to provide me with additional shipping funds so that I can try shipping it again to a different address for you.
If this happens the item will not be considered returnable or refundable. Your options are to provide me with a new address and additional shipping funds, or consider the item forfeit and take the loss yourself.
Additional policies and FAQs
All of my pieces are made with care a quality precision. However, sometimes things still go wrong. That's why all my pieces carry a lifetime warranty!
The lifetime warranty covers any and all defects: lost buttons, grommets that fall out, seams coming undone, etc.
The warranty does not cover damage from wear: rips, tears, stains, fraying, etc.
If you have a problem with one of the pieces you ordered, please contact me, let me know what's happened and if it's not a simple fix I can talk you through, you can mail it back to me to be repaired or replaced.
With that said:
I pride myself in my quality work but these are all hand made pieces. If for some reason there are a few small threads or other mild imperfections to the piece I hope that you appreciate those as the mark of a hand made item. If I missed a thread, all it needs is a snip with scissors, not a long conversation with me. If for some reason the imperfections are obvious and unacceptable please let me know immediately so I can correct the problem!

When placing your order please include any information or measurements that are asked for in the product description to help expedite the process. The less time we spend messaging each other trying to get all the info together the sooner I can have the product made and shipped to you!
If you do not provide the details I ask for on the product listing so that I can complete your order, and you do not respond to my requests for that information after a period of 7 days and after I've tried reaching out to you at least 2 times within that period, I will make my own choices on how the product will be made for you and your order will no longer be considered returnable and/or refundable.
Please be sure you are able to keep open communication with me after placing your custom order =)

Please remember that these are hand made pieces made to order. I do not have these pieces already made, and though I am typically very punctual with my deliveries, sometimes my life gets busy, or many orders come in all at once and I may take a little longer to get to your order than usual. I appreciate your understanding and patience and I will do my best to communicate with you if this happens.

Washing instructions:
Most of my pieces are very unique and made with unique fabrics. Unless otherwise mentioned, you should always assume that my pieces should be hand washed or run separately through the delicate cycle with cold water and a mild detergent. All items should be air dried or run in the drier alone on the tumble setting with no heat. If you'd like specific directions for washing please feel free to ask me!
Color bleeding, tearing, or fraying that happens while washing any of my pieces will not be covered under the warranty unless you are able to provide proof that you followed the washing instructions above.
