This is a flat fee of USD$60 that covers the cost of our design team working with you in creating, modifying and approving design sketches and is REFUNDABLE if you decide to go ahead in making your bikini with us. This cost is payable upfront before we start on the design work and the refund will be issued when the bikini is complete and ready to ship.
However, if you decide to stop work on your bikini during the design phase we will refund as much as we can, depending on how much work has been done to date.
What happens next?
The design phase
Before we start the design process we will ask if you have any more design ideas or inspiration that you want us to take into account.
The design team will use all the information and inspiration you’ve given us to create an initial concept sketch which will be forwarded to you for review.
We will use your detailed feedback to modify and improve the design. To keep the design process moving forward we try to limit the feedback process to 3 rounds.
We will submit a finalized design for your approval. If everything looks good then we can get started making your bikini! We will also calculate the final price at this stage and request payment.
The bikini making stage
We will keep you updated as your actual bikini is created. We will also send some photos as we progress, to make sure everything looks exactly as you expect.
We’ll also send a final photo when everything is finished. If everything looks right then we’ll send it off with love!
How long does it take?
We generally require a minimum of 8 weeks for a couture bikini order. It is possible to make it happen with less time if you’re able to provide feedback quickly.
Some final thoughts…
We know it can be a difficult decision to order a couture bikini. We would certainly not offer this service unless we had complete confidence in our amazing designers and their work. We can guarantee we will work super hard to bring your ideas to life and create a couture bikini that you adore. If you have any questions or ideas you’d like to discuss… we’re always ready to help. :)
