Shipping information

We know just how exciting it is to get parcels so we aim to send out your Runaway goodies as soon as possible. We ship our products via Royal Mail or by the most cost efficient courier available. 

We'll email you to let you know when your order is dispatched (usually 1-2 working days), including the parcel tracking number, where applicable, so you can know when to expect to get really excited!!

If approved, your refund will be processed and a credit will automatically be applied to your original method of payment, within 3-5 working days. 


Only full priced items may be returned, unfortunately sale items cannot be refunded.


We only replace items if they are defective or damaged or if you require a different size of clothing. We will advise you if the item you wish to exchange for is available, in the case that it is not available, we will issue a refund. 


If the item was marked as a gift when purchased and shipped directly to you, you'll receive a gift credit for the value of your return. Once the returned item is received, a gift certificate will be emailed to you. 

If the item was not marked as a gift when purchased, or the gift giver had the order shipped to themselves to give to you later, we will send a refund to the gift giver and they will find out about your return. 


If you want to cancel your order please notify us asap by emailing us at: info@runawaydesigncollective.com

If the order is cancelled before it ships then we will not usually have charged your card. If it has been charged then we will of course issue a full refund upon your instruction. Cut-off time for shipping is 2pm (UK time). We do not ship or deliver at the weekend or on bank holidays. 

If you notify us that you wish to cancel your order after it has shipped out, we will not refund the original shipping cost on your order and you may also incur an additional return to sender fee if it is issued by the courier or postal service used for your delivery.

In the case of a late cancellation we will refund you for the cancelled order minus the original shipping cost and return to sender fee once the cancelled order has arrived back to us and has been processed and checked accordingly. At this point we will notify you by email of the exact charges to be deducted from your refund to the email address that you supplied on your original order.

Once your refund is actioned by us, please allow 3-5 working days for the funds to clear.
