Shipping & Delivery
Is DANIEL AVAKIAN shipping / packaging Ecological ?
Ecology is an important matter to us. That’s why we keep looking for new ways of reducing the ecological footprint of our deliveries. On one hand, we try to reduce the fuel consumption of our deliveries. We achieve that optimising the size and format of the packaging where you receive your order. On the other hand, we are continuously looking for new materials that are more ecological, more recyclable or re-suable, to package your orders. This means that for us is more important that your package is ecological, rather than beautiful. This could be difficult to understand from a marketing point of view. We strongly believe that it would be irresponsible to use non-ecological materials in a package whose useful lifetime is maximum 5 days (ie between our factories and your doorstep). Unfortunately, depending on the country we can use one or other type of packaging, rest assured it will be the most ecological we can use, ensuring an optimal delivery to your place.
What is the delivery time for my order ?
It normally takes only 21 working days in total for producing your Product and shipping anywhere in the world. In fact we aer the fastest company offering quality made to order / custom clothing. If the estimated date of delivery is on a weekend, the delivery will most likely arrive on the following Monday. Whilst average delivery time is 21 working days, DANIEL AVAKIAN the delivery time will be not longer than 30 working days except in situations, events or circumstances, which are beyond our control. That’s why in case you need our garment for a specific event, you should place your order with enough time in advance. We can’t accept returns due to delivery delays.
Do I have to pay customs or other taxes to get my orders sent to my place of preference ?
After placing an DANIEL AVAKIAN Order you should not have to pay any additional amount.
How can I get free shipping ?

Can I order online and still get my Product to fit ?
We understand you want some reassurance when ordering online, that’s why we created our ‘Fit Protect’ policy. We have developed and integrated the 3D body scan service that can be utilised through the App downloaded onto your mobile phone. With this service you can be sure you will be happy and satisfied with your Pre-order / Made to Order Product purchase. Our bodies should not be forced to fit a garment size, but the other way round. That’s why we encourage you to try our Pre-order / Made to Order Products and discover that they fit you better than any other standard size garment you ever had. If, against all the odds, your garment does not fit well, we advise you to visit a local Tailor / Dressmaker / Alterations Shop and, based on our understanding as to what alterations are required and then our prior approval of same alterations and costs, we will cover the alteration costs. And if the Product can not be altered, we will remake you a completely new Product to your satisfaction
What if I make a mistake whilst measuring ?
Using the 3D body scanning App it is very difficult to make a mistake in getting measured – but follow the App instruction video carefully and correctly. The 3D body scanning App algorithms determine your measurements more accurately than an experienced Tailor’s tape. And fortunately our Fit Protect policy will provide assurance that we resolve any mistakes
Is the 3D Body Scanning process easy to complete ?
The 3D body scanning App and platform makes is easy, convenient and quick to use. We simply send you an invitation to 3D body scan, you follow the tutorial whilst you scan and the send us back the scan per the App instructions. The process takes 1 minute and you can scan in the privacy of your home or anywhere convenient for you. All you need to do is wear active lifestyle clothing and stand in front of a plain light coloured wall with no obstructions behind you (such as furniture / wall hangings etc). This scan provides DANIEL AVAKIAN with 165+ vertical and horizontal body measurements that are extremely accurate. And it is almost impossible to make a mistake and you do not need anyone to help you through this process.
Are your Products really made to measure ?
Indeed, at DANIEL AVAKIAN all Products are made to fit your specific and unique body measurements based on either the white label DANIEL AVAKIAN 3D body scan or based on fit analytics
Do you offer standard sizing’ ?
We also offer garments in standard sizes. And that’s good news for you ! Whilst DANIEL AVAKIAN does not have any garments in stock – our Stock Order Products are specifically made to Australian standard body measurements and specific style preferences.
Can I send you a fabric and you make my Product with it ?
Unfortunately we can not do that. We do not work with fabrics supplied by Customers. We only produce Products from fabrics available from our trusted Suppliers and that are represented on our Website. There are many and the best quality fabrics on our Website and we are sure you will find a fabric that you love there. The Website also informs you of the fabric properties and details for your assurance of quality.
Could you send me fabric samples ?
Yes – we offer fabric samples and you can order almost any fabric swatch for our Products. Fabric swatches may take up to 10 working days to get to you as they are sent through public mail. Please note that we do charge $20 / swatch to send fabric swatches but, assume you place an order with DANIEL AVAKIAN, we will credit same fabric swatch charge against your order
What if a fabric I like is out of stock ?
If a fabric is out of stock we will both advise you as to the timing of same fabric being returned to stock and advise an appropriate substitute for your consideration and selection at your volition
Can I order something that is not displayed on the Website?
DANIEL AVAKIAN does offer bespoke styling and Product opportunities based on ‘Customer inspiration/s’ but note that DANIEL AVAKIAN will :-
- Not copy other Designer / Brand creations or styling and thus will insist of modification to same inspirations but within Customer preference and tolerance
- Work with Customers to design then produce a bespoke Product rather than a Custom Product which will mean additional cost and time to delivery
What does it mean that you are an Ethical Brand ?
It is very important to us to emphasise this concept because we really believe that you buy our Product not only because the fit and are amazing quality and value for money with fit guarantee but also because they are produced ethically All our China Factories support their employees with stable, clean and comfortable work environment plus pay a fair labour rates with medical and superannuation contributions so that they and their families benefit from such employment. Our China Factories provide employees with a sustainable and motivating career rather than just a job And our commitment to sweatshop free labour practices is a long term investment and a demonstration that such an ethical and sustainable business and employment model is sustainable in China.
