Are items in my shopping cart reserved for me?
Items in your cart are not reserved for you until you've completed the checkout process and received the order confirmation email from us. For payments via bank transfer, items will be reserved for you for the next 24 hours awaiting your payment. If payment is not received within 24 hours, your order will be cancelled.
I cannot add the item I want to my shopping cart. Is it still available?
If you are unable to add an item you want to your shopping cart, it means it is currently out of stock. See how you can join the waiting list below.
The design I like is out of stock. How do I join the waiting list?
Let us know if you want a design back in stock! We try to restock popular sold out designs whenever possible.

Step 2) Enter your email address in the box to be notified when the item is back in stock.

What is a backorder?
Backorders are opened for popular sold out designs, so you could get a second chance to own the piece you have been eyeing. Orders are placed with the factory to re-manufacture the items and stocks typically take 7-8 weeks to arrive from the time the backorder opens.
How do I order a backorder item?
It’s as easy as purchasing an instock item! Create a new order. Place a separate order for backorders and instock items as they will be shipped separately. If you put in an order consisting of backorders and instock items, your combined order will only be dispatched when the backorder has arrived.
How do I track the status of my backorder?
The backorder status and estimated arrival dates will be updated on the respective product page.
Terms of backorders
The arrival of backorders is dependent on the manufacturing process and shipping, typically taking 7-8 weeks. Backorders are subjected to unforeseen delays and cancellations. As we are unable to confirm the exact arrival dates, please only join backorders if you are comfortable with the long wait. In the event we are unable to fulfill your backorder, we will notify you as soon as possible and provide you with a full refund.
Alyssandra reserves all rights to cancel backorders and change the terms & conditions any time.
How should I care for my apparel?
Now you've got a gorgeous new outfit, how should you care for it so that it will last? Here are some handy tips:
- We highly recommend you always separately hand wash all apparel in cold running water.
- Do not soak the apparel, as colour transfer may occur.
- Strong detergents e.g. Dynamo should be avoided.
- To maintain the garment's shape, lay it flat to dry. Dry the clothing inside out to maintain the vibrancy of the colours.
- We recommend you steam iron where possible. Otherwise, press iron on reverse side of apparel with low heat. Never use a flat iron on pleats!
Tips for caring for denims & chambray:
- Denim dye may be transferred to lighter materials, so do avoid wearing denims with light coloured items/accessories especially for the first few wears to prevent colour transfer.
- Do wash denims before wear. Always wash denims separately in cold running water.
- To prevent colour bleeding, you can try soaking denims inside out in cold water and white vinegar mix for at least an hour.
Tips for maintaining pleats:
Pleats are really pretty but they require extra love during laundering to maintain their looks.
- Hand wash gently in cold running water and allow it to air dry.
- Do not put pleated garments in dryer, as the high temperature will cause permanent damage on the pleats.
- Use a steam iron only when necessary. Hang up the dress to allow the pleats to fall in place naturally, then use swift up-down motion to steam iron the pleats. Do not pull open the pleats during steam ironing.
- Never use a flat iron as that can flatten out the pleats!
Why are some pockets sewn shut?
You might have noticed that some of the functional pockets are sewn shut. This is to help maintain the shape of the apparel during packing. To open up the pockets, you can use an unpicker or a pair of small sharp scissors to cut open the stitches carefully.
You may also choose to keep the pockets sewn shut if you prefer to retain the crisp look.
