What is a Couture Bridal Gown Cleaner?

Couture is a French word for “designing, making, and selling highly fashionable clothing, usually employing fine fabrics and exemplary construction and sewing techniques.”

Sophisticated tailoring, fine or delicate fabrics, intricate beading, appliqués, embroidery, or other fragile handwork are common traits of fine couture by designers such as: Alexander McQueen, Carolina Herrera, Celine, Chanel, Christian Dior, Deborah Johnson, Dolce & Gabbana, Donna Karan, Eleny Couture, Escada, Fendi, Givenchy, Gucci, Hermès, Holland & Holland, Hugo Boss, Issey Miyake, Jil Sander, Language Boutique, Linda Dresner, Louis Vuitton, Holly Harp, Maggie Norris, Miu Miu, Narciso Rodriguez, Norma Kamali, Pilar Rossi, Prada, Ralph Lauren, Roberto Cavalli, Randi Rahm, Valentino, Vanessa Fox, Versace, Vera Wang, Yves St. Laurent, Kevin Hall, and others.

Some assume that couture designs are extraordinarily expensive, and they often are, but it’s the design nuances, sewing techniques and fabrics that define couture. These same features and qualities largely determine the care that couture creations require.

As a Certified Garment Care Professional, Iris City Cleaners posses the Professional Certification (a select few of 33 Nationwide), to manage the requirements of Couture. Iris City Cleaners, with its Museum Care Preservation Technology, manages Couture requirements on a daily basis. Couture care is a delicate process, involving sophisticated technology, chemistry and years of practical experience. A couture care specialist is a well-trained master of their craft, from couture apparel to your white cotton shirts. We clean and restore all clothing, from casual to couture, as well as bridal, vintage, heirloom and museum-quality textiles.

Whether you have a high end suit, sweater or blouse that you wear regularly or a vintage family garment handed down from your parents or grandparents, we will apply hand cleaning and finishing techniques so your couture garments are certain of receiving the correct and proper professional care you want them to receive. Your items are cleaned by themselves and carefully steamed and pressed, then inspected, and expertly packaged before returning to you. While this treatment requires more time, the quality of our couture cleaning techniques are well worth the wait. Couture cleaning is not for everyone, but if you have high-end designer garments or want only the best personal treatment for your wardrobe, trust them only to couture trained cleaner.

This pricing, while higher than our regular pricing, reflects the time, care, and process we use to insure the outcomes both the customer and Iris City Cleaners expect.

We had a destination wedding in Nicaragua two years ago and my mother and my husband’s mother traveled to California to select my gown, I was there too and we bought a designers gown for our wedding. The wedding was absolutely beautiful over looking the ocean at dusk, a day to truly remember, but after the reception, I ended up in the pool with the gown on, and the ground had red in it some of which got on the bottom and top of the my wet gown. My mother was frantic and upset about the gown, so we air dried it, packaged it, and when we got home we sent it to Iris City Cleaners in Iowa. We found them on an internet search for museum care preservation and cleaning, sent them photos and we agreed to let them try to get the red out, clean and preserve it. Two weeks later they returned it via currier. The gown looks like it did when new. What a great and wonderful job. If you are in trouble with a gown, we would recommend them hands down, a great staff and wonderful service, thank you so much.
