The Rise and Rise of Women’s Tailoring

The Rise and Rise of Women’s Tailoring

For centuries, Savile Row has been associated with gentlemans tailoring. However, Huntsman has been creating bespoke ladieswear since 1849, and in this time our women's tailoring has emerged as a powerful and sophisticated force for the most sartorially discerning female patrons. Our success comes from an understanding that women's tailoring should not be a mere replica of men's, but a unique expression of femininity and confidence. That's why we offer bespoke tailoring services that cater specifically to women's needs, preferences, and bodies. 

From the riding breeches of Coco Chanel, to Katherine Hepburn’s iconic high waisted trousers, through our high profile commissions in the present day, we believe that contemporary women's tailoring should be about creating a sense of empowerment, clothes in which women can feel confident and assertive in their style.


Bespoke Tailoring - A Celebration Of Individuality 

Whilst fast-fashion attempts to size and categorise us, bespoke tailoring celebrates the fact that no two bodies are ever the same. In this respect, tailoring is fundamentally about fit and functionality, especially crucial when it comes to good women's tailoring. 

A well-tailored suit can accentuate your natural shape, enhancing your silhouette and creating a union of elegance and sophistication. But the real secret to successful women's tailoring is finding the balance between form and fashion, for a wardrobe that not only looks great but also feels as comfortable as a second skin and is unimpeachably flattering.

Today, contemporary women's tailoring is about more than just the standard suit. The power of bespoke tailoring lies in its ability to create a sense of authority while also allowing for individual expression and style. It is a potent means of empowerment, allowing you to express yourself while feeling confident and assertive. You can designing a wardrobe that can be mixed and matched, creating a cohesive collection of garments that reflects your style and personality and that works harder for you, and for longer.

But how do we do it? We simply take the time. 

In getting to know you, in getting to understand your needs and desires, and understanding your body. Time is the crucial, and yet so often overlooked ingredient in creating a garment that works for you. It is an investment in time, and moreover an investment in understanding our client that has ensured Huntsman’s longevity for over 170 years. An antithesis to fast, throwaway fashion, a bespoke commission with Huntsman is a guarantee of a lifetime of enjoyment.

A bespoke garment from Huntsman is not only tailoring of unparalleled quality, luxury and longevity, but also a symbol of empowerment and individuality. It represents a woman who is confident in her style, comfortable in her skin , and unapologetically herself.
