BEHIND EVERY WELL-DRESSED MAN
Alexandra isn’t your usual tailor. For one, she’s a woman. One of the first on Savile Row, and still something of a rarity. Driven by a desire to make the world of men's tailoring more personal and less intimidating, Alexandra began her tailoring career in womenswear but quickly discovered that she had a hidden talent for making men look 'more'.
After a number of years working in luxury retail, while studying Design and Professional Pattern cutting at The London College of Fashion, Alexandra landed a dream role at Shanghai Tang, Sloane Square. Here she fell in love with Imperial tailoring, luxurious fabrics and the creativity of designing exclusive pieces for Royalty, celebrities and high profile women and eventually men. Two years later Alexandra was asked to join their bespoke department as their Tailoring assistant and within two days was promoted to the role of the Tailoring Manager at the age of 21.
PRESS & OUR CUSTOMERS
Since opening the doors to her own business in 2007, Alexandra has personally designed suits for a whole host of high-profile men seeking a tailored look that squares up to the public eye. In addition to helping politician Chuka Umunna land successive placings in GQ’s Top 50 Best Dressed list and being described by best-selling author and GQ journalist, Tony Parsons as the “tailor of the 21st century,” Alexandra has been a regular fixture in the fashion press – featuring in titles such as Forbes, The Sunday Times Style, The Guardian as well as Forbes Women and CEO Magazine.
A MODERN APPROACH TO SAVILE ROW TAILORING
"I believe that everyone deserves to look and feel their best. I’ve placed this principle at the heart of everything we do at Alexandra Wood, from our bespoke tailoring service to our limited edition ready to wear wardrobe creations.
Central to my approach is creating a warm, welcoming space where you can feel entirely at ease. I believe in offering an accessible Savile Row experience: a relaxed environment where timeless style, modern design and the highest levels of craftsmanship and service are all within easy reach either in-store or online."
JUST THE PRODUCT
Each one of our designs – whether ready to wear, made to measure or bespoke – are all made with the highest quality fabrics using our distinctive and flattering seam shaping design and the attention to detail expected of a Savile Row tailor.
Our collections are designed in-house by myself and my incredible team of dynamic designers, so you can be confident that you’ll be wearing something truly unique and individual. We value individuality and one-of-a-kind style so our-limited edition pieces are created in short runs – when the design sells out, a new one steps in into its place. Value and quality never fade so we never have sales.
