Bringing a Vera Wang Bridal Gown Back To Life

 


We recently had an unhappy wedding gown preservation client who spent a fortune at another specialist to have her gown preserved after her wedding two years ago. Unfortunately, the wedding preservation specialist did not do a proper job and the gown came out stained and almost beyond repair.

Luckily, our team was able to not only save and restore the gown, but bring it back to it's original brilliant condition. 


BEFORE RESTORATION

 Oxidization looks extreme, but can be reversed if treated soon enough.

As you can see, there were extensive "oxidized" stains from clear champagne that was never properly cleaned. 

 Champagne sprays are a blast, but the aftermath isn't so exciting. Luckily, this can be treated!

This is an extremely common occurrence with wedding gowns. The stains were invisible at first, but they oxidized to what you see here.
