Team Meurice @ Running Of The Brides.

Team Meurice held down the fort this past Friday at Filene’s Basement’s Running Of The Brides event. It was absolutely an insane and amazing experience. The doors opened at 8am. By 8:02, just about every bridal gown had been ripped off the racks and snatched up by marriage hungry brides to be. It was soo jam packed  and crazy, my marketing manger and I had to literally jump on top of our work table to escape the mob. It was great. The Meurice team did a fantastic job helping anyone who needed  alterations and garment care advice and estimates. The day was filled with laugher, smiles, tons of hooting and hollering from brides who found the perfect gown. Check out some of the photos after the break.

Meurice Press, Meurice In The Wall Street Journal!

Couture Dress Meurice Garment Care

COUTURE

While the price of repair can be costly, investing in a specialist can not only save the day, but also avert a disaster with a vintage gown. At New York dry cleaning institution Meurice Garment Care (garmentcare.com), each piece is individually inspected before it’s put through a customized treatment tailored to each fabric and stain type.

So, a red wine spill on a silk blouse is submitted to a completely different regimen than a splotch of motor oil on the cuff of a wool pant. “Most dry cleaners have one solvent, one machine,” said Wayne Edelman, the company’s president, who also consults designer brands on their clothing care. “I always say, beware of the plumber who shows up to work on your new faucet with a screwdriver and a pair of vice grips.”

Antique clothing, he said, is especially tricky business: “We do a lot of vintage work, but it’s funny stuff, because people want to maintain the patina. So we’re very clear about their expectations.” While the cleaner on your corner may suffice for some of your wardrobe, Mr. Edelman cautioned, “sequins, beading, mixed-material—say, a white cashmere coat with black leather trim [which could bleed into the cashmere]—you should definitely send that stuff to a specialist. You need the right tool to do the job.”
