Description

‘Tailored: A Very British Fashion’ celebrates the art and heritage of tailoring from the eighteenth century to today. This unique exhibition at Leeds City Museum, in the city centre, brings together a wide range of examples of British tailoring, revealing a legacy that these skills and styles bring to our fashions today. It explores the development of tailoring as a renowned British skill from Savile Row in London to the Leeds tailoring industry. The exhibition will include a major loan from London’s V&A of Ringo Starr’s jacket, made by Leeds-trained tailor to the stars Dougie Millings, and a bespoke suit commissioned as part of the exhibition by acclaimed tailor Kathryn Sargent.
