A wardrobe essential for the professional woman. Marlene Dietrich and Katharine Hepburn popularised casual ladies suiting in the 1940s, but it was Andres Courreges’s slim, minimalist pantsuit, intended for evening wear, that heralded the arrival of the suit as formal attire for females in the 1960s. From Yves Saint Laurent's formal women's tuxedos to Chanel's classic ladies suits, this fashion favourite remains a strong, stylish choice for the modern woman. Women's suiting can be made up in a variety of fabrics, most commonly wool gaberdine or wool crêpe, and most of our suiting material is sourced from our top Italian fabric mills. Look through our women’s suiting section online and you will find all of the fabrics and accessories you need to create a beautiful women’s suit of your choosing.
