JEEVES Services - As Close to Curatorial As One Can Get!


Gerald von Pozniak, General Manager

For over 31 years, Jeeves has been serving the New York City community. When founded in 1969 in New York City, there was no luxury dry cleaner. In the beginning, Jeeves was the only luxury dry cleaning brand in New York, but the previous owners lost focus and a few couture cleaners entered the marketplace. Jeeves advantage now is that they continue to offer the most customized personalized service. The most trends in the luxury market are for "hand crafted luxury goods." Jeeves concentrates on the hand-craftsmanship in the cleaning of couture, bespoke and wedding dresses.

Jeeves is responsible for the cleaning of the entire wardrobe of the Metropolitan Opera, and also for the backstage cleaning of the costumes for the Victoria Secret Fashion Show in the last 2 years. Jeeves also offered backstage support for Fashion of Relief hosted by Naomi Campbell for Haiti. A few years ago, they cleaned two priceless Balenciaga Gowns for the Louvre Museum's Balenciaga retrospective.
