As the founder of Clothes Doctor, a clothing care brand, you can probably imagine that I’ve always had a passion for fashion, and a weakness for beautiful fabrics and colours, like those of the gorgeous Olivia von Halle range. But it’s becoming increasingly understood that as a global community, we are not good at caring for our clothes. Too many items are made to look old before their time, through excessive use of toxic chemicals and sheer over-washing.
In a former life, I was one of those people who took a pile of silk dresses to the dry cleaners every week without giving it any further thought, but since then I have gone on a personal mission to uncover the truth about how we should all be caring for our clothes, to help them last a lifetime. So, it’s a huge thrill to have teamed up with Olivia von Halle, to share some advice on caring for your silk items, which I believe will make every time you put on your OvH garment feel like the first time again.
