In addition to wedding gown care, Kite’s Wedding Gown Specialists are also versed in the care and protection of other heirlooms and special occasion garments such as Quincancera Gowns, Debutante Gowns, Military Uniforms, Christening Gowns and much more.
We clean and press quince gowns to ensure that it is absolutely picture perfect for the celebration. After all, a young woman only turns 15 once!
After the party, we carefully hand clean your Quinceañera gown and take extra steps to be sure all stains, both seen and unseen, are removed because spills such as soda, cake, and other party spirits (many times caused by a guest and unnoticed by you) can dry without leaving a visible mark.
Otherwise, these sugary stains, which are not dissolved during ordinary dry cleaning, will caramelize into ugly brown stains.
Certified Wedding Gown Specialists™ will examine your gown at no charge and give you an estimate for the care of your Quinceañera gown.
Your Quinceañera gown is the most beautiful gown you have ever owned! Now you can have your very special gown cleaned and preserved so that it stays in excellent condition for you or for anyone else in the family when their time comes. In addition, we can store your tiara and all other Quince accessories with the gown!
Once cleaned, your Quinceañera gown will be carefully layered with acid-free tissue and folded into an archival-quality, acid-free chest that protects it from exposure to light and air. No chemicals are added. If it is to be used again, return your Quinceañera gown preservation to any Certified Wedding Gown Specialist™ in more than 500 cities around the world, and your Quinceañera gown will be inspected and pressed at no charge.
Christening Gown Restoration
Whether your family’s christening gown is a treasured 19th-century heirloom, a handmade silk coat and gown from the 1940s, or the christening gown you yourself wore as a child, we can remove the yellow stains and discoloration with our gentle restoration process that does not damage delicate
fabric or dyes.
Communion, Flower Girl Dress, Ring Bearer Suit Restoration
Your antique or vintage children’s clothing can also be restored with hand cleaning and hand pressing to look as bright and beautiful as your children. And there are no harmful chemicals to irritate the delicate skin of young children.
Children’s Specialty Cleaning
If you are storing vintage clothing or beginning a new tradition in your family with a christening gown, flower girl dress, communion dress, or suit selected especially for your child, choose us to give it special care. Fragile decorations such as flowers or metallic accents will be carefully protected from harm during the cleaning process. We also understand that spills containing sugar, salt, and acid will dry clear and cannot be seen when the stains are fresh. These latent stains do not dissolve during ordinary dry-cleaning and turn brown over time, but we know how to clean each precious garment so it will not be disfigured with unsightly stains.
Careful cleaning is essential to prolonging the life of fabric, which can have a shelf life of 200 years if it is treated properly. Whether the uniform you treasure is military, athletic, marching band, or an insignia garment of any kind, our Certified Wedding Gown Specialists™ are experienced cleaners who know how to care for your uniform.
Whether it is a WWII uniform passed down from your grandfather’s time of service, or your child’s beloved band uniform that you would like to preserve before they go off to college, we can help you keep your heirloom in the family the right way with the uniform preservation service you can trust.
Your completely clean uniform will be carefully layered with acid-free tissue and folded into an acid-free, archival-quality chest that protects it from exposure to light and air, preserving this treasured garment for generations. Our lifetime guarantee also applies to uniforms ensuring that if the garment is to be used again, you may return your uniform preservation to any Certified Wedding Gown Specialist™ in more than 500 cities around the world, and your uniform will be inspected and pressed at no charge.
Only completely acid-free containers and tissue are safe for long-term storage of fine fabrics, and we take the same care when we pack a miniature gown or suit for preservation that we do with a wedding gown.
