FabricLink: It's a trendy association

We’re on the heels of fashion, following clothing and home goods trends to ensure that we’re the best at what we do. To remain always fresh, Classic Cleaners maintains a membership with several industry-leading professional associations. These affiliations help us to stay current with everything fabric-and-textile-related, including the latest trends from the runway.

Classic Cleaners is a member of FabricLink, a professional association that works to educate both consumers and trade professionals on the ins and outs of the fabric industry. To help us prepare for the latest fashion trends coming through our doors, we check out the Fashion Forecast to find out what’s hot and what’s not. Did you know the dry cleaning business was so glamorous?

As a company dedicated to providing the highest quality service, following what’s hot on the runway is all in a day’s work. By staying abreast of current and upcoming clothing and textile trends, we can appropriately prepare for new materials and designs that will inevitably find their way into our stores, possibly requiring special care and attention.

According to the Fashion Forecast, we can expect to see contemporary and metropolitan designs with a distinct Scandinavian aesthetic for the autumn 2011 and winter 2012 season. Shades of pink, green and orange in color-blocking styles will complement primal styles with distinct symbols of nature. Time to go shopping!

FabricLink is a resourceful tool for consumers too. The association’s website provides suggestions on removing stains from carpets and upholsteries in addition to clothing stain removal tips.
