Adrianna Papell Dress

Description of Garment:

 Black And White Dress

Manufacturer: Adrianna Papell

RN#: 59782

Care Label Instructions: " Dry Clean Only"

Problem: When drycleaned in hydrocarbon solvent, the black dyestuffs became fugitive and transferred onto the white portion of the dress causing the fabric to become gray in color.

Responsibility: The manufacturer's. Because of the solvent- soluble nature of the black dyestuffs, this dress proved to be unserviceable when drycleaned in accordance with it's care label instructions.

Recommendation: If the above-mentioned damage occurs when this dress is drycleaned as instructed by the care label, it should be returned to the place of purchase for a refund or exchange. We have received complaints that this damage also occurred when this dress was drycleaned in perchloroethylene and Green Earth solvent.

Drycleaner: Since there may be a potential serviceability issue concerning this dress, we suggest that a signed release of liability be obtained prior to it's acceptance for processing.

The NCA's Garment Analysis Laboratory examines thousands of garments every year for serviceability and FTC care labeling accuracy. The featured garment is a recurring item received for evaluation. We have included the name or trade name of the fabric, the manufacturer, the RN number, if available, and a brief description of the problem.
