Stewart Parvin is one of London’s best designers, he is a couturier most famously known for being the Queen’s dressmaker. We sat down with Stewart to discuss his career.
Q: When did you first realise you wanted a career in fashion?
A: I think from a very early age. When I was a child at nursery school I knew the difference between Chanel and Saint Laurent because the lady whose house the school was held at was a very well-dressed woman and I know now, that is what she was wearing in the late sixties. I would go home and tell my mother that is what you need to buy - you need to buy a tweedy suit with big gold buttons at probably the age of three or four.
An exclusive visit to Joel & Son Fabrics in Church street, which is "possibly the world's finest fabric emporium" by Her Majesty's go-to dressmaker.
Stewart Parvin makes us fall in love (all over again) with a selection of his favourite fabric picks from the finest French, Italian and Swiss cloth makers. With rows and rows...and rows of fabrics in store, Stewart takes us on a sensory journey, where he reveals his favourite neon and white boucle, his love of the versatile double-face fabrics, the classic and wild printed silks "which Joel's has the most amazing eye for", to the pretty, delicate and amazing bridal laces and trims.
