Bespoke Fashion in London
When we talk about bespoke fashion brands, we refer to the art of custom tailoring and made to order fashion. Expert tailoring has a long, rich history in London, and you can find decades of experience in the streets of Belgravia, where London’s finest artisan clothing makers are based.
We often think of bespoke pieces as being shirts, suits and trousers, but custom-made clothing has enjoyed a huge revival over the last few years, with more people ditching fast fashion in favour of tailored clothing that will last a lifetime. And if you want that extra touch of luxury and 5-star customer service, then seeking out one of Belgravia’s bespoke fashion stores will guarantee a fantastic experience and a piece of clothing that you will treasure for years to come.
With that in mind, here is a selection of some of our favourite bespoke fashion brands in London's Belgravia area.

But at Eres on Motcomb Street, you can find the most beautiful lingerie, activewear and swimwear and have it tailored to fit you as well as the rest of your other clothes.
Your underwear is the first step in getting dressed, and also provides the foundation of your silhouette. Therefore, it makes perfect sense to also customise your lingerie, so that your other bespoke pieces can layer on top and create the perfect outfit.
A trip to Eres will see their team of experts take care of you from the moment you walk in the door. With a consultation and fitting that encompasses colours, materials and styles, you can commission pieces of underwear that will make you feel like a star every morning as you get dressed.
