We require dressing instructions if:
- You are freighting your garment, or
- We have requested your garment for an event, e.g. showcase, exhibition, performance etc.
Your Dressing Instructions will stay with your garment and be used as a reference for dressing models.
A suggestion: Our wardrobe team has provided some suggestions for writing clear and accurate dressing instructions, along with some other wardrobe tips and tricks HERE.
Detailed, large print instructions are invaluable and colour coding or marking attachment points on garments are helpful. What makes perfect sense to you might not be clear to a wardrobe person seeing the garment for the first time. Ask someone to read your dressing instructions to see if they are clear. See the Sample Dressing Instructions for ideas.
