i have purchased a jumpsuit from Rare fashion and i have contacted them numereous times about my return and had nothing back!! after all these comments below i am worried i wont get my money back i do not trust rare and wont be buying from them again!!
I purchased a dress from this company, back in March. The dress came within a few days, but it was to big, so I sent it back 2 days after I received it. That was the 24th march, I have had nothing back. I have sent loads of emails I just get that automated email acknowledgment. I'm very upset I feel I've had £50 stolen from me. This company should be stopped, quite clearly from the reviews on here they are getting away with theft.
I've never wrote a review on anything before, but I just want to warn people DO NOT ORDER FROM RARE LONDON!! After waiting ages for my my order to arrive I decided to email customer services... No reply! I since sent two more emails that also got ignored! When my order finally arrived, the quality was lovely. The only problem was you would need boobs to rival Katie price's to fit in a size 8 properly! I now have to send the item back, I'm worried after reading the reviews I may never actually receive the refund... I've taken up a complaint through PayPal, not that I'm expecting anything back. Ordering from this company is not worth the hassle or money! Avoid at all costs!!
I ordered a jacket from Rarefashion via their website and payed with my Paypal account (thank god!). I never received my jacket but they've kept my money. Despite having contacted the seller several times I have not heard a word from them except from the automatic reply that they would answer within 48 hrs. Its been months now... Thus I have been forced to initiate a dispute through Paypal which is yet to be settled. My concern is, what do you do when you've paid on-line and can't get help from a company like Paypal? I guess Rarefashion knows that few people know how to put forward claims against a company that may also be situated in another country than your own. Again, do not buy anything from these fraudsters if you're not prepared to lose your money (and time)!
I purchased a dress on March 4th 2014. It's now April 14th 2014 and I have yet to even receive a shipping confirmation! My money was taken out of my account the day I purchased the dress. I've tried to reach out to them THREE TIMES, and the one time I actually got an automated response back saying the following:

Needless to say, 48 hours passed, two weeks passed, and I still haven't received a response from anybody in customer service. I am SO disappointed. I'm a very understanding person, and know that sometimes these things can take awhile (I live in Canada), and since it's coming from Europe, it can take longer than usual. All I wanted to know from these people, is if it had been shipped, because I never received a confirmation, and now after three very polite emails, I feel like I'm being ignored. So, not only did I pay for the dress in Euro's, but I had to pay the exchange rate, and also the duties/taxes, so my $25 dress came to almost $70, and I was ok with that because I loved the dress, but WHERE IS IT? I'm really surprised this company is still in business, almost all the reviews on here are HORRIBLE. I'm surprised nobody has called the better business bureau on these unprofessional people. So MAD!
I've made an order over 2 weeks ago and I still haven't received my order while they still have it in them to take out the money from my card. I've emailed their customer care several times with no response. Seeing that this is a usual thing that they do, I would like to write this review to make anyone using this website aware that they are thieves and do not do as promised.
Bought a dress that was £49, free delivery if you spend over £50 so paid postage also.The next day after my purchase the dress had £20 taken off its price!! I looked in the 'My Order' section and my purchase was not there even though the money was taken out my account. I emailed about this and actually asked if I could cancel my order anyway as it had not been processed as I had seen the dress on a blog and wasn't as nice as I expected.
The dress did arrive but I sent it back the same day, however as my order was not in the 'my order section' I could not properly fill out the returns section. I returned it out the best I could and 2 months later I have not received my return. I also posted it first class recorded delivery which cost another £5 so I know they have received it.
I have sent about 8 emails over the months with absolutely no response at all. The service is shocking. I am out £60 with no dress or the chance to get my money back as they just don't get back to you!!!
Terrible service, I should have looked up the company before bothering to buy from them. I ordered a dress on Dec 18., intending to give it to my friend at uni as a late Xmas gift. I received an email from the company after I made my order that had a confirmation, but never received a shipping confirmation. After contacting customer service twice within the past two weeks, I got nothing, so I opened a dispute on PayPal. I just received an email about my refund after the dispute was opened, but I think I'll keep it open until I get the money back into my account, lest I end up like the reviewer below.
While my experience wasn't as bad as a lot of other reviewers, I would assert that no online retailer should treat customers like this at all. My experience is just further support to the fact that this company is a complete and total scam. DO NOT BUY FROM THESE PEOPLE.
I ORDERED A JACKET FROM THEM IN MARCH, IT FINALLY CAME AFTER A COUPLE OF WEEKS AND WAS TOO SMALL.

RIDICULOUS!!! HERE IT IS OCTOBER AND I HAVE YET TO RECEIVE ANY MONEY BACK FOR A ITEM THAT THEY HAVE BACK! I HOPE THAT EVERYBODY TAKE THE TIME TO REPORT THEM SO THEY CAN BE SHUT DOWN BECAUSE THEY ARE THIEVES!!!!!!!!
The trick to shopping with Rare London is to know that it will take generally around 5-6 working days for your items to arrive, so don't order if you have an event coming up in the next few days in which you want to wear these clothes. The shipping isn't the greatest but it has never taken more than the stated 5-6 working days and has always arrived in excellent condition. The next trick is to shop the sale. They always have an amazing sale and most items are around £7-£10, marked down from around £50! Genuine bargains and lovely quality clothes. Even with sale items as little as £5 most times they have extra discount codes specifically designed for the sale. The codes are normally to knock 20 or 30% off each item. Postage is a little steep at £3.95 but when you consider they have to pack and then send these items via courier you can hardly complain. They are always sent perfectly wrapped and in an excellent condition. The courier drives to your house, knocks and waits for a signature so Rare London know you have received your parcel. If you spend £50 plus then you get free delivery anyway, which may sound a lot but if you are on a shopping spree (which I normally am when I shop the sale), then you can easily spend over that amount. My last shop at Rare came to £52 and I got 8 items of clothing! All good quality pieces from brands such as Coco's fortune and Thirty four disciples. I have ordered from Rare six times and it has always been a pleasant experience. The clothes arrive the next week in immaculate condition and the clothing itself is always of the highest quality!
Every time i make a purchase with this company there is a problem!!!!!! They've sent my items with holes covered up with security tags....Items suppposed to be new with tags turn up with NO tags! there is always an item out of stock.... and when you are really looking forward to receiving something like a rare opulence ballerina dress they send you a shoddy side train dress NOT what i ordered and contacting them by telephone is terrible!!!!!!!!!! not only that they don't send you a returns sticker .....i have to pay my own returns cost and wait 28 days for a refund!!!! avoid if you don't want to be disappointed because i'm disappointed in every transaction i make
I ordered a dress from them for a wedding. When I noticed a week later it still had not been sent contrary to what they advertise, I contacted them to refund me and cancel the order since it would not be received in time. They sent me an email telling me they have refunded me and canceled the order. I kept checking and checking but no refund was ever sent through paypal. Then I received a message from them a couple weeks later that they sent the dress. The wedding had already passed. When the dress arrived, it was the wrong dress to top it off!!! I sent the dress back. They state they never received the dress. Now they have the dress and my money and won't do anything about it. This is a scam company, stay away!! I am also out the money to cost me to send it to England from the US. They have my money, the dress, and they cost me money to send it back, let alone the frustration this has caused me. They are very shady people, watch out!!!
I just received a bunch of dresses that i had ordered in perfect condition- i was worried looking at some of the previous reviews but had nothing to worry at all. The parcel arrived in perfect condition and took six working days to reach me. The customer service advisor (Laura) was also very helpful and she emailed back answering my query in less than 24 hrs. The reason you don't get a tracking number is if you have done an express checkout - so i would recommend you register to the site in the future and i will be doing the same! Tip- I would recommend you buy a size small as their sizes seem a bit big but haven't said that i haven't tried the dresses yet! So if you are an 8-10 then you can get an 8!
I made an order on monday, no notification, no tracking number nothing just an email from paypal that rare had taken the money. After wait 5 days and no clothes I searched and found this site, therefore decided to email them and immediately received this response:

I've ordered an Opulence Ruched Sequin Sash Dresss that was on sale, 50 GBP instead of 165 GBP!!! I received a notification that the dress was shipped but never got any tracking number. Waited for a whole month and then started to try and contact the customer service so they would give me a tracking number for the shipment.Wrote them for three times but never received any response. Interesting thing was that when I've decided to open a case in Pay Pal I was immediately refunded my money without any explanation and they have charged me for a refund/return fee,when I didn't even receive the item and never get any response from their customer service regarding my order and its refund.This is the most outrageous service I've ever received from an online fashion store.Even missguided.co.uk store was more cooperative than this one.I won't be coming back.It was my first experience with that store and I guess my last too.
Not even worth a star!! I returned an item of clothing over a month ago and did not hear back from them until last week where I was told that I could not be refunded using my debit card and instead I could have it refunded by paypal had I given them the necessary details. I did that right away and still have not heard back after sending 2 more emails and 2 messages on their website. Never buy from them!!!!
I ordered a dress in a size 8 and paid for next day delivery which cost me £5 something, the dress arrived but it was a size 6 not 8 this was very infuriating. So I returned the item (with great difficulty due to the rubbish website and having to set up a 'returns case' and then having to get a RMA Number which they don't give you, you have to find it for yourself, then you have to request a return!! - which is abit cheeky because you should be able to return anything within 28 says of purchase without having to ask permission - especially in my case where I am returning an item due to their wrong doing) They have finally sent me a message to say they will refund me for the money, now I am left chasing them for the postage I paid!
