In the news recently it has been announced that there will finally be a female Master Tailor on Saville Row.
A Lady by the name of Kathryn Sargent who has been in the tailoring business for over 15 years. She started off her career at Gieves and Hawkes and then opened up her own tailoring establishment in 2012 in Brook street.
The plan at the moment is to have the shop on Saville Row open for a temporary time period. It will be open for the spring and summer time where Kathryn will decide weather she wants to keep it open for longer.
As a women when I first came across this story I was so happy. Don’t get my wrong the UK is a lot better than it has been at hiring women as much as men but it’s still not brilliant. Especially with equal pay. So to here this story of a women who has been in a male dominated profession for over 15 years. Now she is with them shoulder to shoulder I hope this encourages women to break those stereotypes and take on the male dominated world and proclaim we are just as good as you and I can kick any mans arse in this job.
