Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How many seasons are there in one year?
A: Our Essentials Collection includes 20-22 pieces and comes out twice a year, in February and September. We also have three items that come out monthly called our “drops” that accent and build upon the Essentials. Our first season will be 4 months due to it being our launch.
Q: What is the pricing of the clothing?
A: This is not a fast fashion clothing line, so the prices start at $60 and go up to around $200, with some of our drops or fully sustainable items being a bit higher than $200 in price. We stand by the fact that ethically made clothing costs more, because it is made well, and its creators are taken care of.
Q: Where is the product made?
Q: Is Darling “sustainable”?
Q: What is Darling’s philosophy on sizing inclusivity?
Q: Why is there an investment for Ambassadors?
A: We are seeking to create true change in the retail and shopping experience for women, trading the typically lonely and transactional for a relational and uplifting experience. We aren’t interested in one-off posts without a relationship to our brand and ethos; we are building a sophisticated opportunity for women to organically wear and support a line that is making a positive difference in women’s lives.
We require our Ambassadors to invest in the Essentials line because we believe in showing the entire collection as a capsule that all styles well together. We also believe in the power of showing fabric and fit in an inclusive way to women of all sizes and shapes (whether in person, or on a digital platform). The good news is you can also sell your samples at the end of the season and recoup your investment. However, we think you’ll probably want to keep them! 😉
Q: When is it required to be paid, and do you have a payment plan?
A. Our sample line is worth over $3,000; Ambassadors receive it for only $1,000, which is an incredible deal on an entire capsule collection. You are required to put down a $250 deposit to secure your spot (remember there are only 500 spots for our launch), then there is a three-part payment plan for your remaining balance that is collected 30 days apart. Remember though, our referral program gets you and your friend $250 Darling Dollars each which can be used as credit toward your seasonal sample lines. If you refer a few people, your line can be free.
