Kathryn Sargent to launch Savile Row store

Kathryn Sargent is to become the first female tailor to open a store on London’s Savile Row.

Also the first female head cutter in the history of the street, Sargent will launch an 854 square foot seasonal store this month which will remain open throughout the spring and summer. The store concept has been created by Tanner Design.

Sargent said: “I am delighted to be opening a shop on Savile Row. As a tailor it has been a long held ambition of mine, and throughout my career, I have upheld the excellent values of Savile Row. I am thrilled to be making history, although for me being a woman is incidental, I am a tailor first and foremost.”

Sargent designs, cuts and makes a range of handcrafted tailored pieces including suits, contemporary pieces and uniforms for both men and women.

Having trained on Savile Row, she previously worked at bespoke tailors Gieves and Hawkes for 15 years and became head cutter in 2009. In 2014, she established her first showroom on London’s Brook Street.

Other tailors on Savile Row include the likes of Huntsman, Henry Poole & Co, Kilgour, Richard James and Dege & Skinner.

Rob Fay of Shackleton, who advises the landlords on Savile Row, added: “Kathryn is highly regarded worldwide for the quality of her bespoke garments and we are delighted that she has chosen a location on Savile Row for her new store. Kathryn is very well known in the tailoring community, and her presence here affirms Savile Row as a destination famous across the world for tailoring of the highest standard.”
