In our studios, you find decades of cumulative tailoring experience and creative skills from around the world under two roofs working as a team. Our team ensures your best look – beautiful, sharp, stylish and professional, whichever you choose.
At D&A Front of House private clients are looked after by experienced fitters who ensure your clothes are fitted well. Once pinned, your garments will be collected by our driver to be brought to our tailoring studios located ten minutes walk away – down the road – also under arches. In the studio workroom managers, tailors and seamstresses will look after your garments: They tailor, alter, sew, adjust, restyle, steam and quality control before your clothes are collected again and delivered back to either Front of House, stores in London or the home of a private client in London. To make sure quality standards are consistent, continuous quality control is in place.
