High-quality boxes and packaging materials account for only 50 percent of preservation success, says Madame Paulette’s Bridal, Couture and Vintage Manager, Karen Jean-Aimée. Once a gown returns from Madame Paulette, appropriate storage is equally necessary to maintain quality. Aside from light, mildew and dust, fluctuating temperatures and humidity may also prove dangerous to delicate gowns. As such, boxes should be kept flat in a climate- and humidity-controlled area of the house (e.g., a bedroom rather than basements, attics and exterior rooms).
Unlike some gown preservation services, which require customers to keep the box tightly sealed to prevent damage, Madame Paulette ensures that customers are able to periodically open and inspect the gown. The fabrics should, in fact, be allowed to breathe at least once per year after initial storage. After inspection, refold the dress in different places and wrap with fresh, white, acid-free tissue paper. The dress should be sent to Madame Paulette every 15 years to replace the archival box.

In between cleanings, one should take important measures to preserve quality and durability. Store suits no longer in use in breathable garment bags, using cedar (not mothballs) to repel insects. Wrinkles can be minimized by letting suits rest at least 24 hours (48 for flannel and tweed) between wearings on padded or shaped hangers, with room for the fabric to breathe. Always remember to empty suit pockets, remove any belts or braces and zip and button all closures to maintain your suit’s shape.

One of our veterans has once again, been named employee of the month. Hailing all the way from Belarus, Russia, Galina has been with us for an amazing twenty-one years! Whether it’s taking in a waistline an inch or two or altering a bride's gown for her dream wedding, the reward that Galina receives from her work is the ear to ear smile that she sees on their faces. She also loves seeing the smiles of her two children and grandson, which are most important to her. In her spare time, she loves to read, knit and enjoys dancing.
