“It was a wonderful experience, the shopping, the markets, the quality of everything, and of course the art. Italy is so jam packed with fabulous towns and cities, it was quite overwhelming.”He spent the last two years in Milan as the cutter responsible for Katherine Hamnett London men’s and women’s tailoring.
“Working for a company with five factories and 1,700 employees was certainly a new experience, not to mention learning Hungarian. But it was a very interesting and challenging time."Frustrated with the limitations of mass production and mass market he decided to set up his own business in 2001 and concentrate exclusively on bespoke hand tailoring. The company now has a clientele covering most of Europe but remains true to the meaning of bespoke. All the tailoring is done in-house and all the cutting and fitting is done by Simon himself.
