Everyday dress in Bhutan, amid the (shiny) pages of Vogue magazine -
In the same issue (?May), the article about dry cleaning did emphasise the dangers of perc, the chemical, and mentioned eco chemicals that are increasingly being used. One firm in London will go to great lengths to clean carefully - removing the buttons and sewing them back "invisibly", or even taking a garment apart and sewing it back together - at no small cost. The figures that stick in my mind are the woman who paid - ah this was in a New York establishment - $25,000 to have her $250,000 dress cleaned. And how enlightening to hear that some people spend £300 a month on dry cleaning!
