If you are local (within 25 miles of TN21 or 20 miles of BN11) the piece will be delivered personally free of charge otherwise you will be advised of the final shipping charge upon receipt of the deposit and this will be added to your final invoice.

All the exhibition pieces come with a unique certificate of ownership in order to provide provenance.


“Designer Charles Frederick Worth (1825-1895) is said to have been the first designer label with his signature in his creations. Early in the twentieth century, designers such as Poirot, Chanel, Lanvin and Vionnet used their labels as a means of branding their garments and protecting their designs, and the use of the label as a brand marker as continued ever since. Some labels are also used to define authenticity, with elements like number sequences or holograms offering the buyer assurance that the item is not a counterfeit copy. Labels can also serve to fill regulatory requirements in terms of defining textile content, size, care requirements, and origin…Labels or marks of ownership come in different forms, and occasionally, one might find the name of the owner embroidered or handwritten in a garment.” P55 The Dress Detective by Ingrid Mida and Alexandra Kim
