How To Wash Zebra Print - Keep The White Bright And The Black Dark?

I just got a gorgeous zebra print comforter and sheet set but its very stiff and i need to wash it, but i dont know how i should wash it and still keep the white looking bright and the black as dark as possible, and not to get the black to bleed into the white. What temperature should i use? (cold, warm, hot) and EXACTLY What detergent, brand included? Does the fabric softener count at all toward if the colors bleed or not?

Use cold water and add about a half cup of table salt. It helps stabilize colors. Don't use detergent at all the first time. Then dry them as directed on the label.

Then you can try washing them again, as directed by the manufacturer. If you have a problem, grab your receipt and return them.

Any good Cold water detergent will do. Don't add too much of it, though. I think there is one out there that neutralizes the chlorine in the water. I would think that would be worth spending a bit extra for in this case.

Men's Fashion Week

While Lakme Fashion Week still in progress here in the country, London Fashion Week continued to woo fashionstas in style. This time the fashion fiesta became the talk of the world for a number of reasons and the most important one was the 25th anniversary of the event and a new venue in 180 The Strand moments away from Somerset House. This being a significant year, there were a host of big-names showcasing their designs. Burberry, Pringle, Jeremy Scott and Sass & Bide. Matthew Williamson, Jonathan Saunders and Antonio Berardi also returned to the city to stage fashion shows here. London Fashion Week kicked off with a fresh air of optimism, enthused by London womenswear designer, Caroline Charles. With five changing themes, Charles kicked off with Cruise- a cutesy collection of poppy polka dots, romantic ruffles and flirty shorts. The designer, who was awarded an OBE after celebrating her 40th anniversary in fashion, then followed with Resort- an exotic compilation of fifties style tunics and cropped trousers, accessorising with heavily beaded necklaces, chunky bracelets and sun hats.

Bora Aksu collection was inspired by the Oscar Wilde story 'The Happy Prince'. True to style, there was an array of textures and fabrics, with tulle and lace being the order of the day. Shades of black, cream and ballerina pink dominated. With futuristic takes on modern classics (think pleated brocade coats with sculpted shoulders and high-rise collars in berry hues with metallic touches), the makeup was feminine, modern and fresh to complement it in Paul Costelloe show. Farm boy turned mystic water colourist Emil Nolde was name checked by Nicole Farhias the inspiration for this SS10 collection. Harem trousers looked subtle rather than attention seeking. There were classic shapes with clever flourishes, including a jade-green skirt with a hip-complimenting V-fold and a jacket and skirt in a textured, woven raffia check. Osman You sefzada's beautifully soft shapes, simple, clean and interesting line dresses were awesome. Mark Fast's collection was full of crocheting and knits but nothing granny like about this collection! It was fine whether it is an overdress or soft jewellery. Mary Katrantzou had colourful and kaleidoscopic prints, which perfectly suited the summer season. Biker meets Boho designs with tassels by Aminaka Wilmontare still talk of the town.

Peter Pilotto without any surprise stuck to gorgeous prints and draped dresses which made it to the wish list of every female. Paul Smith's old fashioned Britishness and quirky eclectic style was commendable and very elegant. Josh Goot presented some really eye catching pieces in a mixture of bright colours and optical monochromatic designs. Christopher Kane used a really unusual use of gingham checks to create beautiful and feminine dresses.

Todd Lynn's silhouettes with the shoulders almost sprouting into wings were larger than life, but still wearable. Marios Schwab showcased a mixture of layering, textures, draping, all put together so cleverly for an elegant look. Meadham Kirchoff's clever use of layering and texture was the highpoint of the collection with a great contrast between flowy and structured. British Household name, Clements Ribeiro showcased a still-life presentation of their newly-revived eponymous label. Aquascutum offered a sophisticated take on all things summery. A collection centred around long lengths and muted colours, the show was about grown up, classic pieces that don't yell for attention yet catch the eye with sheer elegance and strength. Giles Deacon focused on accessories this season. The heavy, complex necklaces comprised of silver balls, Swarovski crystals, chains and various other jewels which were particularly impressive. Insect rings are sure to go down in a storm.

Burberry closed the week with the showing of its Burberry Prorsum womens wear line. Bright colours and long dresses featured prominently on the catwalks at many of this year's spring/summer shows thereby setting a trend. From plus-size models on the Mark Fast cat walk to Slum dog couple Freida Pinto and Dev Patel holding hands in the front row at Burberry, London Fashion Week spring/summer '10 certainly caused a stylish stir.
