Upon arrival, your dress will be carefully unpacked, examined and photographed – paying particular attention to any stains or areas that may need restoration or minor repairs.

We pinpoint the most suitable cleaning treatment for your dress from wet cleaning, dry cleaning or hand cleaning using the greenest possible methods and advanced technology to achieve unsurpassed results.

Hand-finishing is an essential part of ensuring your dress looks impeccable after cleaning. Our pressers with years of experience and unequalled skillset individually finish your gown to perfection using customised equipment that will not damage fabric or embellishments, no matter how delicate.

6. Minor Repairs

During the earlier stage of inspection, our experts will have taken note of any minor repairs that may need carrying out on your garments. We will discuss these with you to outline them and factor them into the treatment for your dress. One of our in-house seamstresses will attend to dropped hems or open seams and secure loose buttons or embellishments.

7. Final Inspection

At this stage our team inspect your dress to ensure that each process has been carried out to the highest standards. During this formal inspection, routine attention is paid to that your dress is spotlessly clean, that any minor repairs have been carried out impeccably, and that the hand finishing has left your dress in impeccable condition. Should we be unhappy with any element of these procedures we will repeat any or all of the stages of the process until we are satisfied that we have achieved the desired result.
