Colors & Materials
Fame and Partners makes custom, on-demand clothing and as part of our bespoke customized process we often use small runs of special materials and dip dye some fabrics to ensure every garment is unique to every customer. We understand you want to know what your item should look like when it arrives at your door, so we sometimes use digital color replication on our Web site to show all the different color variations you can select from. Therefore, while we're doing our best to show colors and material variations digitally across all different computer and mobile screens our customers use, we want you to understand that the digital colors and materials as they appear and are described on this Web site may not perfectly match the colors and materials of our actual garments and some slight variations may occur.
Fame and Partners is required by law to collect GST on all orders shipped to customers in Australia. The appropriate charges will be added to your merchandise total and displayed on your final order confirmation. No GST is charged on International Orders.
