Carol Alayne

How It All Began

Carol Alayne is a master tailor and haute couture specialist with over 30 years professional experience both in Savile Row and at a number of leading fashion houses.  

 

Leaving her successful banking career in 1988, she moved from the US to London in order to pursue her passion for the craft of bespoke tailoring.  Here, she quickly developed a reputation for working across disciplines;  tailoring, haute couture, costume and field sports.  

 

She has been connected with the houses of Chanel, Huntsman, Gieves & Hawkes, Welsh & Jefferies, Hardy Amies and Holland & Holland.  In 2008 she relocated her studio to London’s Spitalfields and set up Carol Alayne Bespoke (formerly Tailoring for Women Ltd.) , a specialist bespoke service for women.
