We cannot accept order cancellations once an order has been confirmed.

Order cut-off times are provided as guidelines only, and do not take into account possible delays caused by payment authorization.

Estimated delivery times are to be used as a guide only and commence from the date of dispatch.

We are not responsible for any delays caused by destination customs clearance processes.

We are unable to redirect orders once items have been dispatched.

Depending on your country, you may be subject to customs or import duty charges.   To ensure there are no surprises when you package arrives we recommend you contact your local customs office to find out what fees you may be subject to. We are unable to pay these charges on your behalf, and all charges must be paid on delivery of your order. If you refuse to pay these charges your parcel may be abandoned and The Afterwite will not be held responsible for any loss of funds as a result of this occurrence.



We hope you love your purchase but if you don't you can return them with exception of made to order pieces, samples, sale items and any items marked 'Final Sale'.

You must notify us of your intent to return a piece within 10 calendar days of delivery of your shipment. All pieces must be received back in our studio within 20 calendar days from delivery. 

At this time we do not cover the cost of the return shipment. We can provide you with a return label and deduct the small fee from your refund. The cost depends on where you are located. You can reach out to our team to get an estimate of return shipping fees before you place your order. 

Items must be in original condition (including tags) and must not have been worn, altered, damaged, soiled or washed. Some pieces are made with delicate fabrics so please take care when trying them on and when packing them to return. All packaging (including garment bags) shipped with your order must be returned.

Every clothing item shipped has a tag attached reading "Once this tag is removed, this garment cannot be returned". Once this tag has been removed, the garment is no longer returnable. Each piece will undergo an inspection upon return and The Afterwhite reserves the right to withhold the refund for damaged or worn goods. Items that are returned with makeup or marks will be subject to a dry cleaning fee of $50. 

If you elect to use your own courier we are not responsible for any fees as a result. Any items that arrive with an amount owing will be returned to the customer. Any items that arrive outside of the 20 day shipment window will also be returned to the customer.

We do not refund shipping charges, or international duties or taxes. To submit a return please following the instructions below.
