What is a sample?

As our Sample Sale pieces have been used to create our production, please expect that they will have been used for photo shoots and will have been in the sampling room for quality control and measuring.

We also sample across a wide range of sizes for wash trials and wear trials, which means a piece could have been worn to trial the fabric’s performance. If a piece is in more noticeable wear condition this will be highlighted in the description and the price will reflect this.

Samples are made to create a style, and sometimes it takes several samples to get to the final place where we are happy for a style to join the Donna Ida family, so please bear this in mind when purchasing a sample.

Some pieces will be brand new but just didn’t pass our quality control and were not approved for bulk production.

If there is something more noticeable such as a zip that isn’t in the right position, this will be noted. If it is just that the wash or fabric isn’t correct, it won’t be noted, as only we would notice. The garment may therefore have a full price swing ticket on it, but we didn’t accept these pieces for bulk production. There are also pieces that were full price on our website and we have just one or two left, so we add them to the sample sale to clear them; or we may have added them to a sale and any units left have been added to the sample sale.

Our Sample Sales provide the unique opportunity to grab a bargain or look for the one that got away if you missed it on the website.

Sizes, shipping + returns

Please read the description before purchasing. All pieces are sold as seen and listed, and no returns are accepted.

Unfortunately we are unable to combine shipping.

All jeans are sampled in 25 or 26, and all jumpsuits and special pieces are sampled in XS or Small.

We also have extra jeans sizes from 23 to 34, plus jumpsuits and special pieces from sizes XS to XL, where we have old archive stock from previous seasons.

The size is specified clearly on each item.

Be quick to secure that coveted sample at a special price. Good luck!
