To obtain this store credit, you may be asked to provide sufficient evidence, including, but not limited to, a medical certificate, positive COVID-19 test result, or government documentation. If such evidence is not presented, LA Designer Hire holds the right to withhold a store credit.

2.4 Refunds and store credits DO NOT apply in cases where a garment shows minor signs of wear and tear. Minor signs of wear and tear are defined as, but not limited to, small marks or tears, loose threading, discolouration, etc.

2.5 If a garment is faulty to the extent that it is unwearable a refund will be awarded at our discretion.

To qualify for a refund, you must notify LA Designer Hire immediately and send through photo evidence of any damage WITHIN 3-HOURS OF DELIVERY OR PICK UP. If LA Designer Hire is not notified within this time or sent photo evidence, you may be responsible for the damage.

This amount will be automatically refunded through your original payment method.
