Meet The First Female Tailor To Open Store On Savile Row

by MR Magazine Staff

The first female tailor to ever open her own store on London’s historic Savile Row today told the Evening Standard that she was “pinching herself” at the prospect. Kathryn Sargent’s name will now stand alongside other legendary designers such as Hardy Amies, Henry Poole and Ozwald Boateng in W1. It was 213 years ago that tailors started to descend on the Mayfair street and it is now synonymous with dashing elegance and style. Sargent, 41, previously worked at Gieves & Hawkes for 15 years (where she was the first woman to be made head cutter at a Savile Row tailor) before opening her own store on Brook Street in 2014. She has made bespoke suits for the likes of the royal family and David Beckham.  See more at Refinery 29.
