Savile Row Bespoke: "Inside Out"
Savile Row: The Ambassadors Project Launch
2pm – 4pm
Members of the Savile Row Bespoke Association come together to show the inner workings of the bespoke process and the hours of intricate labour that go into each piece of clothing. A display of work in progress from each of the contributing houses will provide access and insight that the customer so often misses. Meet the craftsman behind each garment and learn more about the enigma of bespoke.
The Ambassadors Project
Savile Row Bespoke is proud to announce the launch of its Ambassador Project at this season’s LCM. Together with GQ, fashion editor Grace Gilfeather and the LCM Ambassador team, each house will interpret a brief to fully kit out and style one of today’s team of style icons.
Launching the initiative at LCM the production process can be followed on social media channels in the lead up to the reveal of the final outfits at LCM in January 2016. This behind the scenes approach to the Ambassadors project fully underlines the individuality of bespoke and gives the audience the chance to see each suit from the inside out. Whilst Savile Row works to the tailoring techniques of yesteryear, the end result is relevant to the modern gentleman and aesthetics of today.
The Bentley Boys 2015
Hot on the bumper of a recent exhibition at the British Ambassador’s residence in Washington DC, Bentley and five members of the Row showcase a collaboration of clothing pieces inspired by the motorcar company’s incredible heritage and precision engineering. Film and photographic coverage documents the project, all accompanied by the finished articles and a fleet of Bentley motorcars.
