Appointments & Procedures

by | Aug 22, 2020

Update March/April 2021


Fitting Appointments  

All fitting consultations in our studio are fully compliant with the Government’s health regulations.

D&A has reduced its consultation hours. Fitting appointments are available on Saturdays and selected weekdays, by appointment only. We try to accommodate your requests and offer fitting consultations that fit your diary. For enquiries, email reception@designandalter.com 


Virtual Fitting appointments – temporarily not available 

Clothes should look and feel as if they are made for you. To explore how you can improve the fit of your garments, D&A offers free virtual fitting appointments, in which we discuss fit improvements, alterations, and provide you with an idea of costs. Appointments are available via WhatsApp, Zoom, and Skype. We sometimes ask for a virtual fitting consultation in advance of a home fitting. Get in touch to find out more!


Fitting Consultations at your home address – temporarily not available 

Some small amendments to your clothes can make a huge difference in the way you look! Do you have any beautiful garments that need some adjustment to fit them perfectly? The experienced team of D&A offers convenient fittings at your home address. Our fitting consultant visits you to discuss alterations and potential restyling of your clothes. The consultant fits your garments and also gives you information about charges. Home fittings in postcode areas in central London are currently free of charge.


Sending your Garments by Post

If you prefer, please send your garments by post or courier. We would ask you to clarify any alterations, repairs and amendments with our workroom manager in a virtual fitting appointment before sending your clothes. You can use one of London’s fantastic range of courier companies with some of them being environmentally friendly! Please email us!

Procedures for Fitting Appointments



We are sure you understand why we must ask for your co-operation and strict adherence to the safety measures laid out below:

The health and safety of our clients and staff is very important to us. Please help us by being alert and vigilant at all times.

If you are feeling unwell or are showing any COVID-19 symptoms, however mild, please DO NOT attend and let us know immediately.

We do not want to compromise the quality of our service, but we must stay safe and it is easy to re-schedule.

You may come accompanied by one other person, if necessary, but please avoid and notify us beforehand.

The one-on-one consultations and fittings are currently restricted to the client and consultant only.

Please wait outside our studio until we are ready and can invite you in.

Please wear a face covering when you enter our studio.

We will ask you to use hand sanitizer immediately you enter our studio.

Whilst in the studio, please avoid touching any surfaces.

Please keep at least 1m distance apart and preferably 2m (6 feet) where possible and at all times.

Our consultants will work with you in our fitting room(s) and will wear PPE for our mutual protection.

If you are unclear or concerned about any of our safety procedures, please feel free to openly discuss it with us, any time.
