Give your dresses collection an instant upgrade with on-trend additions from BERNADETTE. The brand’s commitment to expert craftsmanship endures, with each piece using materials such as silk. Specialising in elevated essentials that are made to last, the label’s range has something to suit every shopper. Available in a range of styles and silhouettes, BERNADETTE's dresses are well worth the investment. Regular care and maintenance will help keep silk in its original condition for longer. Silk is a durable and sturdy fabric, but does need special attention to keep it looking its best. We would always recommend reading the care label on your silk garments to check for washing instructions, and if a ‘dry clean only’ symbol isn’t shown, then most should be suitable for hand washing. If your silk is not dry clean only, then it can be hand washed in lukewarm water with a delicate detergent. Hand wash using specific, mild detergents and cool water in order to protect silk’s natural properties. Leave to soak for a few minutes, then remove excess water by gently pressing instead of wringing or twisting as this can ruin the garment’s shape. Avoid putting in the tumble dryer and instead lay flat to dry naturally. If you must wash in the machine, place the silk item in a mesh laundry bag and select a delicate cycle. If the care label on your silk item says that it can be ironed, then use a low iron setting and ideally iron while it is still slightly damp. For a guaranteed way to add an air of effortlessness to your look, shop our range of women's designer dresses from BERNADETTE.
