Jeeves Goes To Downton Abbey
Jeeves received a call a few weeks ago to assist with the cleaning of the costumes for Downton Abbey; The Exhibition. As the costumes are one-of-a-kind, irreplaceable, and in some cases antique, Jeeves set up a workroom at the exhibit space to clean each item by hand. For over five days, Managing Director, Jerry Pozniak, cared for, and hand cleaned, 46 costumes for the exhibit.
From Lady Edith's second wedding dress, which was constructed of 100 year old lace to Lord Grantham's Hunting regalia, every costume currently on view at the exhibition was cleaned by Jeeves New York. Some costumes just need a light touch up of oxidized stains while others needed a more through cleaning.
Anna Mary Robbins, the costume designer for the final seasons of Downton Abbey was in from London to supervise the installation of the costumes for the exhibit. Ms. Robbins was exceptionally pleased with the results achived by Jeeves. The exhibit is on view until April 2018.
