Ashley Lauren’s Satin Tips
Last year, some of our favorite fashion pointers came from
designer Ashley Lauren. She taught her faithful fashionistas the
right way to care for satin fabric. Much of our image is preparation
for a glamorous event, but what happens when the event is over?
After a night on the town, what’s a girl to do about smudged makeup
and sad wrinkles on a beautiful satin dress? Our designer shared
secrets through social media and we want to share them with you!
1. Do we steam or do we iron? Ashley Lauren says that ironing is
the quickest way to get wrinkles out of satin. It doesn’t stretch
the fabric which guarantees long-time wear. Solid advice indeed!
2. Don’t panic if you get makeup on your dress. This designer says
to fold the satin on itself and rub together. Rubbing satin on satin
should do the trick.
3. If a small stain appears, hand-wash with mild detergent. Gently
rub the spot in cold water and hang the dress to dry.
4. The most important tip? Keep your gown in a dress bag for as long
as possible. It protects the dress from possible snags and scratches,
which satin can be prone to. Only unbag when you’re ready to iron.
