How it works
STEP 1 : Call & make your appointment for your free consultation. If you see something you like on the website that is fine but I suggest that you come into the studio as I am always creating new styles & have a larger selection at my studio. You can talk to me directly to see what you want me to create for you so you definitely know that your design is created especially unique for your outfit & you will be guaranteed not to meet someone wearing the same design.
STEP 2 : Select the booking date at least 3 weeks BEFORE the day you need your custom hat design for. If you are selecting a design that requires no changes, you can come to the studio 3 days before your event to collect your chosen item. All rentals are for a period of 5 days.
STEP 3 : Pay for your Hat and the deposit fee.
STEP 4 : Return your hat in person and we return your deposit.
All the details
We have a large collection of one-off hats that are available to hire. There are many more that are not on the website. Hiring one of our hats or fascinators is a great way to source an original ‘last minute hat’ and allows for a wider range of clients to be able to wear a handcrafted Asta Fashions headpiece. Hat hire is also an environmentally aware way to secure a high end fashion item that you may only want to wear a limited number of times. Please check out the hat hire section of the website to see some of the rental collection. Hat hire is only available to Irish customers.
If you would like further information on the hats we have available to hire, or arrange an appointment to try on some pieces, please contact us.
When coming to your appointment, I advise to bring your outfit and accessories with you that the piece you choose compliments all aspects of your outfit.
Asta Fashions reserves the right to retain the full deposit if the item is returned marked or damaged in any way. This includes but is not limited to, dents, holes, pen marks, make-up and rain marks. The hired item should not be returned smelling of smoke, perfume or hair products. If this happens the deposit will be retained. Under no circumstances are customers to attempt to clean any hats themselves. Whilst the weather is beyond control, please keep the hat under an umbrella at all times when it is raining and be aware of certain fabrics and features of hats being more susceptible to weather damage in bad conditions. If the headpiece is damaged beyond repair, the customer will be liable to pay the cost of replacement and the security deposit will be taken into account when costing.
All hats will be supplied in a hat boxes, these must be returned with the hired hat. Customer will be liable to a 10 euro charge to cover the cost of replacing any hat boxes not returned. The full hire fee will be refunded for cancellations made 14 calendar days prior to the hire date less any payment processing fees incurred.
