HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR SPECIAL PIECE

We know that DS items are lifetime pieces so it’s really important that you take special care with every piece you own. All garments are lovingly handmade in our UK studio. They’re made with pride and the confidence that they will go to a new home forever! Protecting your garments is a great way to support sustainability and it’s why we inject so much care and attention into what we do.

Silk

Must be dry cleaned, do not wash.

Tip: You can hang your silk garment up in the bathroom while you shower, the steam should ensure the creases fall out.

Sequin

Hand wash in luke warm water, dab with a towel and hang to dry.

Tip: If you need to iron your sequin garment – iron on top of a tea towel and NOT directly onto the sequins. Do not steam.

Glitter

Wash on a cold wash in a pillowcase and hang to dry.

If glitter becomes transferable, spray with hairspray 10cm away from garment.
