Care & Alterations

General Care

Ensure you read the care label and cleaning instructions before attempting to clean.

By following the instructions on the care label you will keep your couture gown looking fabulous and at it’s absolute best.

Alterations

Suzanne Harward does not provide an alterations service and this also applies to Suzanne Harward online styles. We recommend you take your pieces to a reputable local tailor. Please contact our Customer Care Team should you require advice regarding alteration services in your area.

Delivery

Your couture gown will be delivered wrapped in acid free tissue paper. Gowns with embellishment will have a protective organza cover placed over the embellished area of the gown. Your gown will arrive carefully packed in to a keepsake heirloom box for safe keeping. This box will be packed inside a shipping box with a Suzanne Harward protective garment bag included in the delivery. To protect your exclusive Suzanne Harward gown we recommend you hang your garment within the protective bag provided.

Dry Cleaning

Each Suzanne Harward gown is individually handcrafted with great care and uses delicate fabric, embroideries, embellishment and lace to convey the same timeless, feminine and ethereal nature that is the Suzanne Harward handwriting. This may lead to variation in finish, colour and fabrication. Please take the utmost care when cleaning and wearing your gown as jewellery, finger nails and harsh detergents can harm delicate fabrics and finishes. Embellishments and fabrics may change in colour with time and wear adding to the charm and individuality of each piece. These are not faults in the production of the garment and are consistent with handmade couture quality. Your gown will arrive protected in acid free tissue paper and an organza cover covering any embellishment. A protective garment bag is provided to ensure the gown remains in impeccable condition. Please hang your gown in the garment bag when you receive your delivery.

If you wish to clean your gown after your special day we recommend you take your gown to a reputable specialist drycleaners experienced in cleaning of delicate couture pieces.
