Formal & Evening Wear
Formal wear is typically made from delicate fabrics and many times has detailed ornate beading, or fragile trim items. Garments of this type require special care and handling in the cleaning process. We are trained and have the expertise to properly clean and press even the most intricate of evening wear. Your clothes will always be carefully handled with meticulous attention to detail.
A freshly laundered, well pressed shirt is essential to making a good first impression. Our qualified staff and state of the art equipment ensures you will be looking your best. Attention to detail is a priority, from crisp, wrinkle free collars and cuffs to inspecting for and replacing missing or broken buttons at no charge.
Your wedding gown is one of your most treasured possessions. We will handle the cleaning and pressing of your wedding gown with the care and precision deserving of an heirloom. If you choose to box your gown for safe-keeping we will first clean the gown and contact you for your inspection of the dress prior to being boxed. This will help insure that all stains and concerns have been addressed prior to packaging. We will then package your wedding dress in a specially designed gown box using acid free tissue paper at the folds to prevent wrinkling. With proper care, your wedding gown will be a well-preserved keepsake for generations.
