Established in 1892 as a formalwear manufacturer, The London Fashion Workrooms branched into alterations in the seventies. The first large fashion workroom was launched in 1997 specifically to service the shops and boutiques of London’s west end.
Based in Covent Garden with a 4000 square foot purpose built unit, we presently provide garment alteration services to 38 high-end London stores and many private clients. With 20 tailors on site we have the skills and personnel necessary to provide a one-stop service for all your needs.
All tailors at the London Fashion Workrooms come from a bespoke background and have the experience, skills and knowledge to perform alterations at the highest standard. All work is undertaken, from relining a coat to fixing a button. No job is too small or large.
We also offer a dry cleaning service for your convenience.
We have experienced professional dress fitters who can take accurate body measurements to ensure you acheive the perfect fit. All dress alterations are carried out on site so whether you want to shorten a hem or replace a zip, or even a full dress remodelling, we are available and you are free to pop in at any time.
The London Fashion Workrooms restore loved garments to their former glory. Whether they are ripped or worn, fixing garments is an economical way to preserve quality clothing. Some fabrics can be repaired using a simple patch. For jeans in particular this is a cost effective and hardwearing way of fixing a damaged area. Where appropriate we can disguise damage by adding a small dart or a cleverly placed new seam.
We can replace or reinforce well-worn areas of a garment such as the gusset of trousers to ensure a longer life. Our skilled tailors often reinstate worn out pockets and reline garments either fully or partly depending on your requirements.
For precious garments or finer fabrics such as wool or silk we can invisibly mend holes or rips by reweaving the fabric. We use threads taken from a concealed area of the garment such as a hem or internal facing to replicate the original weave. This technique dates back more than 200 years and is a highly skilled and time-consuming process. The result is as flawless as humanly possible.
It may be that over time your body size and posture has changed making it necessary to have your suit nipped and tucked accordingly or perhaps you have fallen in love with a suit but need it tapered to your exact body shape. Call us to make an appointment and pop in for fitting with one of our tailors.
