Caroline Andrew is emerging as a highly respected London College of Fashion tailor, based in the heart of London. Her work was featured in the November 2011 issue of Vanity Fair in a Couture article as ‘The one to watch’, and she was one of the final 20 candidates for the BBC3 ‘Young Tailor of the year’ show which was televised in February 2012.

With her clean and minimalist signature look, Caroline offers a high level bespoke tailoring (and professional alteration service) for the “fashion aware” women of London, who need to project a very individual “right look. True to her pioneer spirit, Caroline Andrew has been recognized for consistently breaking new ground, combining fashion, design, art and architecture into her bespoke garments to create this very personal “right look”.

To achieve that perfect fit and look Caroline works with some of the most respected professionals from Savile Row. In particular, she has teamed up with a master tailor and a master cutter, both from leading design houses on Savile Row. And, of course, the fabrics she uses only come from the top (British) suppliers. So you can understand why Caroline Andrew’s motto is “Savile Row meets Couture”.

Caroline is a recent graduate from University of the Arts London, London College of Fashion, having completed a BA in Bespoke Tailoring. She has built her experience up by working in a number of internships and taking on a variety of private commissions including senior business women, politicians and private individuals. Her skills include traditional as well as forward thinking and incorporated pattern cutting, design, styling and tailoring, which include machine and hand sewing. Caroline also does menswear tailoring.
