Kathryn Sargent trained on London’s prestigious Savile Row and worked at Gieves & Hawkes for 15 years, becoming head cutter in 2009. In 2014, she opened her first showroom on Brook Street in London’s Mayfair.
The 854 sq ft store will open in April at 37 Savile Row and remain open through the summer.
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.”
“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,” added Rob Fay, director at property agency Shackleton, which advised Savile Row. “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.”
