On today’s show, I chat with Museum Textile Services founder and Director Camille Myers Breeze about wedding gown preservation. Drawing on 25 years of experience as a textile conservator, Myers Breeze discusses what to look for when selecting a professional gown preservation service, scams to avoid, and the single most important thing you can do to ensure your dress survives the next 30+ years. She also offers tips for easy, low-cost DIY gown preservation, including this helpful handout with links to the supplies you’ll need.
