The Morning After: How To Care For That Gown

Posted on

Even though not everyone took home a golden statue last night, all the nominees were given something to protect their lovely gowns in while traveling home. The Laundress, a luxe-laundry line, sent them a garment care kit which included a monogrammed garment bag ($90) with a large pocket for shoes and accessories, a bottle of Crease Release wrinkle remover ($14), a fabric refreshner ($14), stain solution pacquettes ($14 a box) for tough stains like wine, and biodegradable dryer sheets ($14). Its creators, Lindsey Wieber and Gwen Whiting who used to work at Chanel and Ralph Lauren, say their products are safe for all clothing — from jeans to cashmere to silks and designer gowns — and use only natural and organic ingredients. In other words, your gown will still look fresh, even if you’re feeling a little hungover. Hurrah!
