Rubber Fashion that Doesn’t Fade

We all know that rubber fashion looks and feel terrific – but it can fade in sunlight and looking after it is a hassle. Well, people have been experimenting with various chlorination processes that help and now designer Kim West is making ALL her clothes in “Glyde-Tex” chlorinated rubber.


Kim has also developed her own new polish called “Fade Stop” which shines and protects from damaging UV – no more greasy silicon spray!


This a major advance in rubber fashion – go here to find out more - www.kimwest.co.uk
