Structured in a similar way to the London tailoring houses, our staff are each experts in their different fields.
Simon founded the company in 2001 after a career in an international tailoring business to concentrate exclusively on bespoke hand tailoring. Managing a small company is constantly challenging, but the satisfaction of working for exceptional clients makes it all worthwhile. In his spare time he enjoys traveling, visiting markets wherever he is and spending time in the kitchen. He likes being based in Budapest. The cultural life, particularly classical music is very inspiring.
Dora has been a partner in the company since it started in 2001. She has a degree in garment engineering and having spent a few years in the UK after finishing college, has always worked in the tailoring business. Her experience in people management and administration has been invaluable in helping the company grow. On a day to day basis she manages the fabric and trim cutting. Something of a drama buff, when not at the cutting table she can often be found at one of Budapest’s many theatres.
Szilvi started working with us in 2002. She is now responsible for making all the trousers, as well as the first fit ups. She has always worked in clothing, since she finished the ladies tailoring school in Szekesfehervar. She took a break from sewing to get married and have a family. A busy mum, she is kept on her toes by her two children, who both have promising sports careers ahead of them.
Olga was introduced to us by a mutual friend in 2005. While having learnt embroidery from her grandma and mother, she had to perfect the different techniques and stitches required for hand tailoring. Like everything practice makes perfect and her finishing and buttonholing are now some of the finest to be found.
Milan is the newest member of staff. With a background in retail menswear and fashion styling, he is now responsible for the front of house and customer communications. After having worked for an international chain of menswear stores he is now finding the challenge of developing and sourcing new products exciting. Growing up in a sporty family, his early dreams of becoming a professional handball player have changed over the years as his interest in fashion and style grew. He now contents himself with a few sets of tennis per week to keep in shape.
