From Victoria Beckham to Gwen Stefani, the latest trend to be seen is customised, bleached denim. But you don't have to shell out a fortune to get the designer version - unleash your inner designer and follow these easy steps to DIY:
How to fade dark denim jeans;
1.Renew colour in your old faded denims with Dylon machine dye first , or if you have a new pair don't wash them
2.Use strong bleach (max strength) e.g. White King bathroom thick bleach with the squirt top, apply directly onto the denim
3.Over a bathtub or on a garbage bag and wearing rubber gloves, apply bleach to the area you wish to remove colour and leave for about 20 minutes
4.Rinse with cool water then wash your jeans as normal, with detergent. Repeat wash two-three times to ensure all the bleach is washed out
5.For an extra dimension, over-dye your jeans - Dylon's China Blue Hand dye will give dark denim the designer look or try black jeans with Intense Violet or Goldfish Orange
Denim can be as individual as you are and customisation is always in vogue. Keep those new jeans looking new for longer, bring last season's pair of jeans back into high rotation with a bold new colour or even just revitalise an old favourite. With ease your wardrobe can be renewed and refreshed, at the fraction of the price you would be paying for a new purchase.
Established in England in 1946, Dylon dyes were born in a year of progression: In Italy, women voted for the first time, while in France the world's first bikinis made headlines. Dylon was the ray of sunshine that post-war London needed, thriving in the 'make-do and mend' mentality of the time and brightening up the homes, wardrobes and spirits of Britain.
Since then, Dylon has earned its reputation as the experts in colour. From its part in the psychedelic, swinging 60's through to the launch of innovative cold-water and machine dyes, Dylon has found itself firmly set amongst the fashion forward.
