Mad Men Costume Designer Pens Fabric Care Guide

NEW YORK, Apr 13, 2012/ — Today might be Friday, the 13th but it turning out to be a lucky day for fashionistas on the go with the release “The Fabric Care Guide: Tips and Advice on Caring for Your Clothes” penned by Janie Bryant, the costume designer on AMC’s Mad Men.

Written in conjunction with Downy Wrinkle Releaser, the 14-page booklet, complete with sketches by Bryant, provides fabric care tips for a variety of fabrics including acetate, acrylic, cotton, nylon and wool and features fabric swatches to help readers identify the different types of fabrics.

Not only does Bryant have Downy Wrinkle Releaser on the set to keep costumes camera-ready, but it is also a favorite fabric-care product for her personal wardrobe, too.

“One thing I’ve always been passionate about is how important presentation is to having great style,” said Bryant. “Looking pressed and polished is often just as important as what you’re wearing and the best way to pull off that look is to know how to take great care of your clothing.”
