We will sell the items that you have sent to us or that we have collected from you on a consignment basis (the “Item(s)”). Unless the context otherwise requires, words in the singular shall include the plural and vice versa.
This Agreement comes into effect at the point that you first send worn. the Item.
- OWNERSHIP, RESPONSIBILITY AND DISPOSAL OF THE ITEMS
worn. accepts your Items on a consignment only basis. That means you are responsible for all risk of loss or damage to the Items until worn. takes physical possession of them. Notwithstanding, worn. is not responsible for any Items lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed while an Item is being posted, couriered or otherwise in transit. If an Item is damaged, stolen or lost while in worn.’s physical possession, it will be treated as Sold and worn. will pay you the relevant Commission on that Item. worn. is not responsible for loss or damage to Items once they are no longer in worn.’s physical possession.
Because worn. is selling your Item on a consignment only basis, this means that you, not worn., will still own the Items, even after you transfer physical possession of the Item to worn..
You will continue to own and have title to each Item until that item is “Sold” or “Donated”.
An Item will be considered Sold when:
(a) it is sold by worn. to a customer of worn. and that Item is not returned to worn. within the period specified in worn.’s Return Policy; or
(b) it is lost, stolen, damaged, or destroyed while in the physical possession of worn.
An Item will be Donated where worn. has physical possession of an Item or Items, but you have not responded to any contact from worn. for at least 21 days in relation to your Item(s) (after worn. has made reasonable attempts to contact you). At this point, worn. may donate the Item(s) to a charity of its choice. worn. is not liable for any losses you may suffer as a result of this donation and does not have to compensate you for the cost of the Item(s).

Once worn. has confirmed receipt of the Item in accordance with this Section 3, worn. will evaluate each Item to determine, in its sole discretion, the quality and value of the Item, as well as whether the Item is authentic, namely that the Item is designer and is not counterfeit or stolen (“Authentic”). We will charge £50 for this evaluation to determine whether an Item is Authentic, unless you can provide paperwork which provides, to worn.’s satisfaction, that an Item is Authentic.
Once the Item has been evaluated, inspected and authenticated, worn. will send you email confirmation that the Item has been accepted for consignment (an “Accepted Item”), with suggested prices in accordance with Section 6.
