We will not refund the Appointment Fee for changes or cancellations made to a couture appointment later than 5 business days prior to the appointment date.

Gift codes can only be used for products delivered by ModeWalk, never for products delivered by other retailers.

We choose our designers based on three criteria: 1. exceptional design and flawless craftsmanship, 2. representative of their countries' savoir-faire and 3. a beautiful story to tell from an emerging talented designer to a century old couture house. ModeWalk looks beyond trends and is for the true style connoisseur.
How often is merchandise refreshed?
We refresh merchandise on ModeWalk on a constant basis, often weekly or even daily.
How do I know the items are authentic?

What if my item needs to be repaired?

Do you offer sales or discounts?
We may occasionally offer sales or discounts, usually as an exclusive reward to our best customers - those who have purchased the most.
What is my sales tax?
Prices displayed on the site are exclusive of taxes. When you proceed to purchase your order, sales tax and customs duty (where applicable) will be calculated on the total merchandise value and shipping charges and displayed on the Order Summary page, unless otherwise specified. If you are shipping within the USA, sales tax will only be charged on orders shipped to the state of California. No other tax or import duty will be applied to orders shipped within the USA. Please note that all non-customs related local taxes are the customer's responsibility. ModeWalk is not responsible for reporting or paying additional local taxes to states, such as Use Tax. Outside the USA, most destinations are shipped to on a DDP (Delivery Duty Paid) basis, which means that all relevant import taxes and duties will be included in the final purchase price. If a DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid) destination is selected (such as Bermuda or Mexico), product prices displayed are exclusive of all taxes and duties. As the recipient, you are liable for all import duties, customs and local sales taxes levied by the country you are shipping to. Payment of these is necessary to release your order from customs on arrival. As we are unable to advise the amount this may be, we will always seek your confirmation by email prior to dispatching a DDU order. Please look out for this email to ensure timely dispatch of your order.
Which forms of payment do you accept?
Payment can be made by Visa and MasterCard.
Is it safe to purchase on your site?
The security of your personal information is important to us. To help ensure that your shopping experience is safe, simple and secure, ModeWalk uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology when you are in the "My Account" or "Check Out" sections. This encrypts and protects the data you send to us over the internet. If SSL is enabled, then you will see a padlock at the top of your browser and you can click on this to find out information about the SSL digital certificate registration.
Why do I need to re-enter my credit card details when I add a new address?
For your security, we do not store your credit or debit card details on our site. We hope you understand that this is a valuable precaution designed to protect your personal information.
What is your return policy?
How much is it and how long does it take?
All merchandise is shipped for free within the United States via UPS ground and is guaranteed to arrive between 1-5 business days. We also offer express shipping at an additional cost.
Is my package insured?
Yes. All orders that are shipped to you via ModeWalk are fully insured for loss, theft, or damage. We insure all items in transit until they reach their destination. We strongly recommend and by default require signature at the time of delivery. You may choose to leave the item at its destination without requiring a signature. However, ModeWalk’s insurance does not cover any loss, theft, or damage incurred after delivery to your destination. Items returned to ModeWalk using our delivery partners UPS domestic and DHL international are also insured. When returning items we advise you use the pre-printed return label included in your package. We will not be held liable for any loss, theft, or damage if items are returned to us by any other method than our approved delivery partners. If your box is damaged upon arrival, we recommend that you either refuse the delivery, or make a note when signing for it that you are accepting a damaged box.
Which locations do you ship to?
We ship domestically and internationally to 170 countries around the world and offer different shipping options to meet your needs. Please see our Shipping & Returns
policy for more information.
Do you offer same-day delivery?
We currently offer same day delivery service in the San Francisco Bay Area only. For more info or to make a suggestion, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
How will my order arrive?
Your order will be delivered to you in a sleek black box, beautifully prepared in our signature ModeWalk packaging.
Do you provide gift wrap?
If purchasing as a gift, please select the gift wrap option upon checkout. Your gift will be prepared in our signature black matte gift wrap with red satin ribbon.
Do you ship to P.O. Boxes?
We are unable to deliver to Post Office boxes. We also do not deliver to forwarding addresses.
Why are shipping restrictions applied to certain items?
We are unable to dispatch items made of exotic skins to California and outside of the United States. If you add a product to your shopping bag that we are not permitted to ship to your country, the site will automatically identify it and prompt you to remove it. To proceed with purchasing this item, you would need to ship it to a different destination address. In the case of exotic skins, this would need to be within the United States, excluding California.
Does ModeWalk ship to multiple addresses?
You may only ship to one address per order. If your order contains gifts or items that require shipping to multiple locations, you will need to place separate orders for each address. For corporate orders, please contact email@example.com
Do I need to sign for my package upon delivery?
Due to the high value of the goods that we sell, we require proof of delivery for all orders, unless you explicitly opt out and agree to bear the cost in case of loss, theft or damage.
Can I change my shipping address after my order has been dispatched?
We are unfortunately unable to redirect orders once your items have been dispatched. Therefore, please ensure you provide a suitable shipping address for the specified delivery times.
Can I add items to an existing order?
Unfortunately, it is not possible to combine orders or add items to an existing order. If you would like all of your items to be delivered together, you will need to cancel your order(s) and place a new order, which contains all of the items you require.
