The DoneDeal guide to buying clothing

  • If it’s supposed to be designer wear, make sure you know what an authentic sample would look like: stitching, branding, etc. Is there any authentication certificate available?
  • If you’re buying items second-hand, especially wedding dresses, find out what it would cost new. Are you really getting a good deal?
  • Ask if any alterations have been carried out on the clothing, especially dresses.
