The prestigious Friday Late program at the V&A museum is back, hosting an exclusive event charting the history of women’s tailoring in Britain.

Women’s Tailoring: Genesis and Evolution will share the knowledge and expertise of three great British names – Jaeger, the high-class high-street favourite; young and blossoming brand Evie Belle; and Tailoring for Women, one of the few female entities on the legendary Savile Row. Each will give an account of how their brand has evolved – in the case of Jaeger, covering a grandiose 125 years – and will offer a snapshot into the daily life of a tailor, highlighting influences, production processes and business acumen.

The event will be divided into two parts, the first in a seminar format complete with Q&A session for the audience who will leave with complimentary goody bag, and the second a drinks reception allowing one-on-one chat with the designers surrounded by an exhibition of beautifully tailored pieces in the V&A’s opulent surroundings. Tickets are going for £25 or just £5 for students, and are available by calling the booking office on 020 7942 2820.
