Designer Friday cares just as much about the environment as we do about the people who wear our products: our innovative approach to sizing means that our garments have no size labels and are designed to fit UK sizes 10-16.
We feel that a woman should never be defined by her size and that every single one of us deserves to look and feel beautiful. We aim to create the feeling of dressing unique a relaxing, happy experience and eliminate the concept of returns due to a poor fit.
We are happy to accept your returns within 14 days of receiving your goods..
We do aim to reduce the cost associated to returns as much as we can. We do this by advising each of our customer on the sizing exactly measured for each dress (stated on each product page) as each of our items are made from unique limited edition fabrics.
We feel we all need to be mindful of the cost of returns on our environment and people. Here are some facts to consider:
"The average returned purchase in the UK passes through seven pairs of hands before it is listed for resale. Every day thousands of these packages begin their costly journeys between processing centres and warehouses where products are cleaned, repackaged and readied for new owners."
Do get in touch if you need help with measurements or have a question on our returns process.

Celebrate who you are!
💖 At Designerfriday, we believe the only thing that matters is how you perceive yourself and if you like what you see in the mirror.
No beauty or fashion trend should define you. So, push boundaries.
Get out of your comfort zone, boss up, and straighten your crown.
And most importantly, celebrate who you are!
Where are the products made?
All our fabrics are secured using responsible methods from fair trade units and products are made locally in the UK as well as in a small unit in India.
We collect fabric no longer of use from local production units meaning all garments are made of 100% pre-consumer cutting room scraps, design room waste, deadstock garments.
We simply add our creativity and imagination and create patterns and templates in our London Studio. Once the mock-ups are tested, and we know the fit and function works by trying them on various size fit like zillion times, we then choose the fabrics to be made into these mock ups in our unit in India.
We can guarantee fair wages and good working conditions have been provided to make our garments. The fabric for the products comes from UK and India. The mask filter comes from US.
Who are our people?
Our dedicated tailors and a community of women run by and for women located in northern part of India plays a pivotal role in transforming our pieces into the final product from the mock-ups produced in our London studio.
The products are made in a non-profit social enterprise, to financially empower the ladies of the village in rural India through creating ethical and sustainable fashion.
The female-run unit also focuses on the education of all daughters of women members, runs the only female health clinic in the village, and delivers workshops on a range of topics including human rights, feminism, menstrual hygiene, health, and financial literacy.
So, it’s a complete win-win, empowering women who make the dresses as well as the women who would wear them.

My wife had mentioned their dresses a few times, so for her birthday I bought her a maxi dress in her favourite colour. She's in love with it and very satisfied. Highly reccomend!
I am in love with my new dress! It fits comfortably and the patterns are stunning. I have received so many compliments and will definitely be buying again soon.
The biggest seller for me was their commitments to sustainability and working with non-profits to empower women around the world. More companies should be doing this and I am happy to support.
