Tailored: A Very British Fashion

Art, Textiles

An exhibition exploring celebrated examples of British tailoring and its development through time.

Celebrating the art and heritage of tailoring, 'Tailored: A Very British Fashion’ takes you from the eighteenth century right up to the present day, from Leeds' tailoring industry to Savile Row, country wear to formal attire and the working class to the echelons of aristocracy.

The exhibition will feature an eclectic collection of pieces, including a jacket worn by Ringo Starr, made by Leeds-trained tailor Dougie Millings, a specially commissioned suit made by Leeds-born Savile Row tailor Kathryn Sargeant, plus work by contemporary designers including Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen and Roger Saul for Mulberry.
