Designer Alterations

The crucial Attention to Detail

Why are designer clothes more expensive than non-designer clothes? Sometimes it may be hard to comprehend. Apart from paying for the brand name, there often is irrefutably a difference in quality, detail and finish; beautiful not only from the outside. Look at the lining, look at the binding! 

D&A offers a high-quality alteration service that maintains the finish, style and proportions to ensure that your garment looks, feels and fits ‘designer.’ Designer Alterations 

Quality Control:  Before any garment leaves the Workroom, it will be quality controlled – twice – rigorously!


Alterations – Tailoring – Men’s Wear

25% Discount from 01/09-30/10/2021

D&A is well known for its excellence in formal clothes alterations. We offer designer finishes, including working buttonholes and hand-sewn finishes. To ensure designer/original detailing and proportions – perhaps buckles and buttonholes of jackets and coats – we shorten sleeves from the shoulders. Sometimes small adjustments like taking in a waistline or the tapering and shortening of trouser legs can make all the difference in sharpening your look!

Men’s Wear Alterations

Additional Services



Dress Re-Styling, Restoring, Preserving

‘I love Vintage!’

Sometimes it does not take much to update, renew or revamp the look and extend the life span of a garment. Lifting a waistline, readjusting the shoulders or shortening a hemline of vintage or an old favourite may just save the item from retirement. Quality clothes turn into classics and rarely run out of date. To enquire – 020 7498 4360.


*We offer a 20% discount on restyling and relining alterations to support more sustainability in fashion and to encourage wearing clothes longer.

Custom made: If your signature garment is falling apart, our made-to-measure department can replicate it in any chosen fabric and colour. Made to measure
