The American Dry Cleaning Company do much more than simply dry clean your clothes. We also offer clothing alterations and repairs at our branches across London, including our Blenheim Crescent branch.
What we have found interesting is the increased demand for our clothing repair services as more people are more mindful of what they wear and choose to buy.
We love that more people are choosing to buy pre-loved and vintage clothing instead of chain-store fashion clothing pieces. Buying vintage clothing is a great way to minimise your carbon footprint and remain stylish without falling victim to fast-fashion trends.
Breathing new life into vintage clothes
When buying pre-loved or vintage clothing, sometimes they have been donated while carrying some minor damage. If you love shopping for vintage clothes, then never be put off buying a fabulous looking outfit because you discover it has a tiny bit of wear or damage.
We have customers bringing in some beautiful vintage clothing finds to our Blenheim Crescent branch with minor, easily fixable issues such as moth holes, torn lining, loose or stretched seams, torn hems, broken zips, missing buttons or stretched buttonholes.
Even delicate embellishments such as embroidery, lace, sequins and pearls can be fixed or replaced if they are damaged beyond repair.
Buying vintage clothes and having some minor damage or wear and tear repaired by our team can be far more cost-effective than purchasing brand new fast fashion. You can really make a statement by mixing vintage pieces with some modern shoes you already have in your wardrobe.
Repairing more than clothes
Did you know that our Blenheim Crescent clothing repair team can fix more than your clothes? It is true! We can take care of any repairs to your clothing accessories too!
How frustrating is it when you catch the strap of your shoulder bag on a door handle, and it causes the strap to nap? Sometimes snagging your handbag or shoulder bag on door handles and handrails can tear a hole in your bag or tear the seams of your strap.
Sometimes the zip on your sports bag can break, or the buckle on your satchel or backpack breaks. There is no need to throw these perfectly good bags away when you can get them fixed instead.
Do you wear hats? Even hats can sustain some minor damage, but we will happily mend your hat for you if it is fixable.
Accidents do happen, but don’t despair! Bring your broken pieces to our team at American Dry Cleaning, and we will repair them for you. We can take care of damaged shoes too, so let our team look at your damaged items before throwing them away.
Why not drop in to see our team at 11 Blenheim Crescent, Notting Hill, W11 2EE. We will let you know if we can repair the damage to your clothing, shoes or accessories, and it will save you a lot of time and money, allowing us to restore them for you instead of replacing them
