Client Services

  • Special Orders

    If you see something in our stores, but it is not in your size, ask and we will try to get it for you. See something from one of our designers in a magazine or out shopping somewhere else and you would like us to get it for you? Just ask.
  • Layaways & Holds

    If you see what you want and need more time, we have solutions for you. Layaways allow you to pay for the item over 30 days and a hold will reserve that item for you for a short while.
  • Alterations

    We have an on-site seamstress, so all of our alterations are done professionally and to your specifications. And the wait is much shorter! Best of all, alterations on regular priced purchases are free.


  • For anyone looking for premium designer clothing in the city you have to visit Foreign Affair. Both locations are great but offer different styles that suit every demographic. The staff are knowledgeable about the lines and are friendly and helpful. They always have great deals and if you get on the preferred client list you will have the opportunity to find out about sales before they actually open it to the public.

  • "Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only;  fashion is something in the air. It's the wind that blows in the new fashion; you feel it coming, you smell it ...in the sky, in the street; fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening."
    Fashion Is Something In The Air, Coco Chanel
