The Site helps users interested in making the most of their garments ("Clients") to find, connect and interact with designers (“Designers”) and take advantage of certain other services we offer (for example, we enable Designers to make some products available to order "off-the-shelf"). Designers can provide details of their goods and services through the Site so Clients can find and engage them easily. Designers are responsible for providing their goods and services. If you have any questions or concerns please raise them, with Designers in the first instance through the Site. If you’re unable to resolve things directly, let us know. You can email us at email@example.com or by using the contact us functions on the Site, where available. Please note we are a platform that connects people. We do not always review listings through the Site and are not a party to the actual transactions between Clients and Designers unless we expressly agree otherwise. We don’t provide goods, or design or upcycling services ourselves, and the contract for engagement of Designers by Clients is between those Clients and Designers
