Abi.K. Colourful and Stylish Clothing

Bristol, England

Announcement    Hello and thanks for visiting my shop! Abi.K Clothing started almost by accident. I am a professional Costume Designer and Maker, inspired by bold prints and colourful patterns from around the world. When lockdown hit the world in March 2020, I saw about 6 months of work disappear almost overnight. The Arts sector has been particularly badly hit by the crisis. I spent a few weeks at home trying to home educate my 2 kids, but really missed my creative work. I decided to have a go at making some clothes I always dreamed of making, but never had time to, due to being busy working on other jobs. It was also an opportunity to use some of the fabrics collected on my travels, that have been lying around my studio for years. I started off by making an 80s style batwing bomber jacket, with a matching face mask and head band made out of the scraps. I posted it on Facebook and I was suddenly inundated with orders from friends! I started an Instagram account and haven't really stopped making since then..the orders keep coming in! So I decided to turn my costume shop into a fashion label. This shop used to be a platform for me to sell pieces of theatrical costume, and you can still find some pieces in the Theatrical Costume Section of the shop. However, most of it has now been hijacked by my latest designs! I have made clothes that I feel to be unique, fun, colourful, comfortable and stylish. Many of them are one off pieces, made from a fabric bought halfway round the world about 10 years ago...! Some of them are fabrics sourced closer to home, but all of them are designed, cut and made 100% by me, working alone in my studio. I am able to take commissions and make stuff to order, so please do get in touch with the item you would like and the size you want and I will do my best to accommodate you, providing I have enough of the fabric. I hope you enjoy browsing my designs and enjoy looking at them as much as I have enjoyed making them.

Shop policies

Last updated on 05 January, 2021
Hello and thank you for reading my policies section. This is a great way to make sure that we all have a happy online shopping experience!

Most of the items in my shop are made to order. That means that I don't buy anything in ready made, or have any stock to choose from; more often than not, your item of clothing will be made specifically for you once your order is placed. I aim to make everything within one week of receiving your order; however, during busy times this may take a bit longer, so bear with me. I will inform you if it's going to take longer than a week.

Listings for fitted garments such as leggings, skirts and trousers have the measurements specified in the listing. Please check before ordering if this is suitable for you. Because I make stuff to order it means that I am happy to make custom orders. If you would like an item made to your specific measurements, please send me a message with your requirements and I will make sure I make your garment to measure.

Because of this, I am unable to accept returns on clothing made to order: leggings, skirts, dungarees, trousers and tops. I gladly accept returns of bomber jackets provided they are in 100% new condition. Please see the Returns and Refunds Section for more info.

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Apple Pay Klarna Gift card
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits

Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalised orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
Refunds and Exchanges

Because I make most items to order, I cannot accept returns for them. Please check carefully the measurements in the listing before placing your order, or contact me with your own measurements if you require a custom order.

I can only accept returns on the bomber jackets, provided they are in 100% new condition and packaged well. The buyer will have to pay for return postage, and I can only refund the cost of the item, not the postage cost.


The buyer is responsible for return postage if not satisfied with the product.

The original shipping charges cannot be refunded.
Payment
Thank you for paying straight away for your purchases.

Payment is required immediately to purchase an item but if you require more time to finalise a purchase then please do get in touch so we can discuss something to suit.

I can reserve items for a maximum of 7 days only.

Payment is by PayPal. You do not need to have a PayPal account to pay by PayPal and as you go through the Payment process choose the option 'I do not have a Paypal account' then follow the instructions on how to pay by credit card of your choice. It is a secure site.

If you live in the UK I will accept £ sterling cheques and will send your items when the cheque clears.

All custom taxes shall be the responsibility of the buyer. Each country will have it's own specific charges.
Delivery
I aim to post all orders within 7 working days of being ordered. If I am unable to do this, I will contact you to let you know. If you need an item sooner, please message me and I will arrange for Next Day Delivery, at an extra cost.

I post worldwide and will send items by International Tracked and Signed Delivery. If you wish to keep costs low, please contact me about sending my normal (unregistered) post, although the item is then sent at the buyer's risk.

Postal insurance is optional and if you wish to have your purchase insured then please get in touch so I can let you know how much extra it will cost.
