3. BASIS OF CONTRACT
3.1 These Conditions apply to the Contract to the exclusion of any other terms that the Customer seeks to impose or incorporate, or which are implied by trade, custom, practice or course of dealing.
3.2 The Order constitutes an offer by the Customer to purchase the Goods in accordance with these Conditions. The Customer is responsible for ensuring that the terms of the Order are complete and accurate.
3.3 The Order shall only be deemed to be accepted when the Supplier issues a written acceptance of the Order, at which point the Contract shall come into existence.
3.4 The Contract constitutes the entire agreement between the parties. The Customer acknowledges that it has not relied on any statement, promise, representation, assurance or warranty made or given by or on behalf of the Supplier which is not set out in the Contract.
3.5 Any samples, drawings, descriptive matter, or advertising produced by the Supplier and any descriptions or illustrations contained in the Supplier's catalogues or brochures are produced for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the Goods described in them. They shall not form part of the Contract or have any contractual force.
3.6 A quotation for the Goods given by the Supplier shall not constitute an offer. A quotation shall only be valid for a period of twenty (20) Business Days from its date of issue.
4.1 The Goods are described in the Supplier's “Lookbook” (the “Description”).
4.2 The Supplier reserves the right to amend the Description if required by any applicable statutory or regulatory requirements.
5. PRICE AND PAYMENT
5.1 The price of the Goods shall be the price set out in the Order for the Goods covered by that Order, or, if no price is quoted, the price set out in the Supplier's published price list in force as at the date the Order is placed.
5.2 The price of the Goods is exclusive of the costs and charges of packaging, insurance and transport of the Goods, which are set out separately in the Order or as otherwise notified by the Supplier to the Customer.
5.3 All payments made by the Customer shall be in pounds sterling unless otherwise notified by the Supplier.
5.4 The Supplier may, by giving notice to the Customer at any time before dispatch, increase the price of the Goods or the applicable delivery charges to reflect any increase in costs that is due to:
5.4.1 any request by the Customer to change the delivery date(s), quantities or types of Goods ordered; or
5.4.2 any delay caused by any instructions of the Customer or failure of the Customer to give the Supplier adequate or accurate information or instructions.
5.5 The price of the Goods is inclusive of amounts in respect of value added tax (VAT). However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of the Order and the date of dispatch, the Supplier will adjust the VAT payable, unless the Customer has already paid for the Goods in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
5.6 Orders that are shipped overseas may be subject to custom duties, fees and charges. These are not included in the purchase price or the delivery charge. The Customer is responsible for all of these charges. Orders that are shipped overseas may require export licences or permits. The Customer is responsible for obtaining and paying the cost of any required licences and permits.
5.7 Payment for the Goods and the applicable delivery charge(s) is required in full at the time the Order is placed and prior to dispatch. Payment shall be made to the bank account nominated in writing by the Supplier. Time of payment is of the essence.
5.8 The Customer shall pay all amounts due under the Contract in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (except for any deduction or withholding required by law). The Supplier may at any time, without limiting any other rights or remedies it may have, set off any amount owing to it by the Customer against any amount payable by the Supplier to the Customer.
6. DELIVERY OF GOODS; ACCEPTANCE
6.1 The Supplier shall ensure that each delivery of the Goods is accompanied by a delivery note which shows the date of the Order, all relevant Customer and Supplier reference numbers, the type and quantity of the Goods (including the code number of the Goods, where applicable) and, if the Order is being delivered by instalments, the outstanding balance of Goods remaining to be delivered.
6.2 Once the Goods have been paid for in full in accordance with clause 5.7 above, the Goods shall be dispatched by the Supplier and delivered to the location set out in the Order, or otherwise notified by Customer to Supplier (the “Delivery Location”).
6.3 Delivery is by Royal Mail for both mainland UK and international deliveries and any dates quoted for delivery are approximate only. Time of delivery is not of the essence. The Supplier shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Goods that is caused by a Force Majeure Event or the Customer's failure to provide the Supplier with adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Goods.
6.4 Delivery of the Goods shall be completed on the Goods' arrival at the Delivery Location.
6.5 If the Supplier fails to deliver the Goods, its liability shall be limited to the costs and expenses incurred by the Customer in obtaining replacement goods of similar description and quality in the cheapest market available, less the price of the Goods. The Supplier shall have no liability for any failure to deliver the Goods to the extent that such failure is caused by a Force Majeure Event or the Customer's failure to provide the Supplier with adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Goods.
6.6 If the Customer fails to accept delivery of the Goods, then, except where such failure or delay is caused by a Force Majeure Event or the Supplier's failure to comply with its obligations under the Contract, delivery of the Goods shall be deemed to have been completed at 9.00 am on the third (3rd) Business Day after the day on which the Supplier delivered the Goods.
6.7 If ten (10) Business Days after the day on which the Supplier delivered the Goods the Customer has not accepted delivery of them, the Supplier may resell or otherwise dispose of part or all of the Goods.
6.8 Where the Order is measured by number, the Supplier will have fulfilled its contractual obligation in respect of the Order by dispatching a quantity of goods within one or two packs above or below the quantity ordered.
6.9 The Supplier may deliver the Goods by instalments, which shall be invoiced and paid for separately. Each instalment shall constitute a separate Contract. Any delay in delivery or defect in an instalment shall not entitle the Customer to cancel any other instalment.
6.10 The supply of Goods is subject to availability. It is not always possible for the Supplier to inform the Customer at the time the Order is placed whether the Goods are still available for purchase. In the event of this happening, a refund may be given.
7. TITLE AND RISK
7.1 Risk in the Goods shall pass to Customer on delivery.

8.3.2 the Customer alters or repairs such Goods without the written consent of the Supplier;
8.3.3 the defect arises as a result of fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, or abnormal storage or working conditions; or
8.3.4 the Goods differ from the Description as a result of changes made to ensure they comply with applicable statutory or regulatory requirements.
8.4 Except as provided in this clause 8, the Supplier shall have no liability to the Customer in respect of the Goods' failure to comply with the warranty set out in clause 8.1.
8.5 The terms implied by sections 13 to 15 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, excluded from the Contract.

14.1 Severance. If any provision or part-provision of the Contract is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall be deemed modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid, legal and enforceable. If such modification is not possible, the relevant provision or part-provision shall be deemed deleted. Any modification to or deletion of a provision or part-provision under this clause shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of the Contract.
