Over the years, our business – caring for designer, high fashion, specialty and couture garments and accessories – has exposed us to many unusual and wonderful garments and accessories with trim and embellishments.

This exposure has allowed us to become highly skilled in cleaning and finishing these garments and accessories, many of which would be routinely rejected as “uncleanable” or “extremely risky” by the overwhelming majority of dry cleaners.

At RAVE FabriCARE, we can expertly, safely and effectively clean almost any garment or accessory with trim and embellishments. Whether it’s beads, sequins, rhinestones or pailettes; plastic, vinyl or rubber; paint, glitter or silkscreen; feathers, appliques or embroidery; suede, leather or fur.

Costumes from musical productions

Our expertise in expertly, safely and effectively cleaning almost any garment or accessory with trim and embellishments is the reason why numerous theatrical touring companies that stage their shows at the ASU Gammage Theatre entrust their ornate, heavily embellished, one-of-a-kind costumes to RAVE FabriCARE.

It’s not uncommon for some of these one-of-a-kind costumes to cost upwards of $5,000 each.

In recent years, RAVE FabriCARE has cleaned costumes for musicals such as Kinky Boots, La Cage Aux Folles, Les Miserables, Lion King, Phantom of the Opera, Porgy and Bess, Wicked, The Book Of Mormon and Finding Neverland.

Costumes from opera and ballet productions

Our expertise in expertly, safely and effectively cleaning almost any garment or accessory with trim and embellishments is the reason why Arizona Opera and Ballet Arizona trusts RAVE FabriCARE with their ornate costumes.

After the final performance of each production, RAVE FabriCARE cleans the production’s wardrobe, whether the wardrobe is owned outright by the opera or ballet company or loaned to it by another opera or ballet production company.

It’s not uncommon for the Arizona Opera or Ballet Arizona to have a costume investment of $250,000 or more in a single show.

In recent years, RAVE FabriCARE has cleaned costumes for many Ballet Arizona productions, including A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Nutcracker, Romeo and Juliet and Swan Lake and many Arizona Opera productions, including Carmen, Rigoletto and The Magic Flute.

Costumes owned by collectors of theatrical memorabilia

At RAVE FabriCARE, we also serve individual collectors who collect costumes and other textile-based artifacts related to specific theatrical productions.

For example, one of our clients collects Phantom of the Opera costumes and other memorabilia (with provenance) from the first Broadway run and from the 2004 movie.

We recently cleaned, finished and preserved the “Think Of Me” dress worn by Emmy Rossum and Carlotta’s “Il Muto” dress worn by Minnie Driver from the 2004 movie.
