This month’s “Beautiful but Dangerous”, is a dress by Matthew Williamson. Beautiful, yes, but almost impossible to clean due to the heavy embellished trim at the neckline.
To further complicate matters, the trim at the neckline cannot be removed easily. Thankfully our client only had minor stains on the dress that allowed hand-cleaning, otherwise Jeeves would not have been able to clean the dress without completely removing all of the trim at the neckline; otherwise full dry cleaning would cause the glass trim to break. Removing the trim at the neckline to allow the dress to be fully dry cleaned would have added $300 to the cost of cleaning.
