Dear customers, suppliers and friends of Sabina Motasem, like many small businesses during this challenging time, we are exploring every avenue to brace ourselves for this unprecedented shock to our health, community and economy. Our main aims are to keep paying our staff, keep our work room ateliers open and try to find ways we can help those least supported and most vulnerable. We'll be focussing our efforts in three key areas:
1. WE ARE HONOURING ALL OUR FITTINGS AND DELIVERIES.
We’ve reached out to each of our brides and stockists to reassure all is okay, by operating on limited hours at the boutique and working from home. We can also deliver your dress to you too. We are doing everything to ensure our customers are well taken care of. We’ve got a sparklingly clean space with lots of hand santizer, washing facilities to ensure your fittings go smoothly.
2. DON’T COME TO US, WE CAN DELIVER TO YOU!
We are launching our first sustainable and vegan wedding dress range with prices from £900 perfect for when we are all out of this mess, or if there are brides who are stuck indoors during this lockdown or self-isolating and trying to plan their weddings for later in the year or for 2021, the dresses will be available to buy on-line from April. If you’d like to try one of our Nouveau couture dresses on in the comfort of your own home, or any of our sample sale dresses, we can send them to you to try on. Just email us for more information.
3. WE WANT TO FIND WAYS WE CAN HELP THOSE WHO ARE MOST IN NEED.
We’ve signed up to the Red Cross Community Volunteer scheme. We will be contributing to food banks (our local Islington food bank has had to close down because there’s no food!). We will support other small businesses in any which way we can. We have joined community networks to help our elderly and others who need help and reaching out to all our friends, colleagues and family.
We are following government advice and protecting our staff and customers. As circumstances change, we will adjust our internal policies and keep you updated.
Stay safe and lots of love
