SAVILE ROW’S FIRST FEMALE TAILOR

London, United Kingdom Cultural June 4 @ 11:44am

Kathryn Sargent has entered one of the last male bastions namely Savile Row, the tailoring street in Mayfair. Formerly the location for the filming of the Beatles ‘Let it be’ it has recently been modernised by the arrival of Abercrombie and Fitch’s destination store, complete with model assistants. Kathryn feels that ‘the cut of a gentleman’s suit says more about him than almost anything’. Women do share this passion for tailoring and her shop is one of the few houses to respond. I ask about how it feels to be a woman in the industry, how she has been received and how she has turned her gender to her advantage. Also I ask about women’s tailoring, its clientele and its progress
