A little bit
THE LONDON ACADEMY OF BESPOKE IS A PRIVATE BESPOKE TAILORING SCHOOL, BASED IN BATTERSEA, LONDON.
Our tailoring school (also fondly known as LAB) holds private classes in a wide and varied range of topics within bespoke tailoring. Our team of teachers currently, or previously work/ed for, tailoring houses on London’s prestigious Savile Row. Every lesson that we deliver is designed to closely assimilate attributes of a traditional bespoke tailoring apprenticeship. We keep class numbers small to maximise the learning potential of everyone involved – tutors included! Our aim is to share knowledge through a network of skilled artisans, from within a niche area of expertise, to foster and nurture the next generation of bespoke tailors, cutters and master tailors. Furthermore, to do so generously, with the objective of maintaining standards in teaching the necessary skills and history of Savile Row bespoke tailoring and cutting. Our first promise is that you will be taught genuine tailoring techniques as practised in businesses along Savile Row. Our second promise is that we will individually do everything we can to allow you the freedom to learn fully and to have confidence in the work that you produce, both in practice with us in the studio and thereafter.
