Turn garments inside out. Washing the dark fibers in the washing machine begins to strip the color from your black clothes. By placing the garment with the inner lining outside, the outer fabric is less likely to fade during washer agitation.
Choose cold water and the gentle cycle. For machine washable clothing, select the cold water setting for black clothes. A gentle or slow washing cycle reduces the agitation speed of the washer. As a result the dark clothes do not rub together frequently and cause fading of the dark fibers. via Care-ehow
"what I love most about my social life now is that it's exactly the same as it was before: hole-in-the-wall restaurants, bad movies, and a lot of sitting around with friends doing absolutely nothing. "—Alexander Wang WANG: It's been an amazing journey-one I never thought in a million years I'd be experiencing this soon. We've been in business since the end of 2004, so it's all been really recent-about five years. Me, my brother, and my sister-in-law started this really without much guidance or experience. I was in fashion school, my brother has a law background, and my sister-in-law had worked in production, but none of us had a proper fashion business education. So being where we are today and thinking of all the people we've met and all the things we've been able to achieve has been a mind-blowing experience. It's hard sometimes to take a step back and realize what's happened because you're always trying to move forward. You're always looking at the next palette.
VON FURSTENBERG: What has been the biggest difficulty so far?
WANG: I think predicting what's going to come next. But, in part, that's what I love about fashion. Anything can happen. The next day, everything can change, so it really keeps you on your toes. You always need to be paying attention.
VON FURSTENBERG: Where do you find inspiration for a collection?
WANG: It can be anything. I'm not like most designers, who have to set sail on an exotic getaway to get inspired. Most of the time, it's on my walk to work, or sitting in the subway and seeing something random or out of context.
VON FURSTENBERG: What is your biggest fear?
WANG: I think everyone shares a fear of failure-that you're only as good as your most recent collection. That's definitely a fear, but it's a fear that fuels me, that makes me want to work harder, that makes me take on more challenges. For people to say, "You can't do this or that," or, "You can't work with this person because they are on a different level than you," it makes me want to push myself even harder to try.
VON FURSTENBERG: Who are the three people you admire the most?
WANG: Number one is my mother. She's definitely been the one person in my life who pushed and supported me-
Great interview, with a great designer.
