One of Savile Row’s first female tailors exclusively designing for men, Alexandra Wood
has been described as a ‘tailor of the 21st century’ by GQ and named one of the best
Savile Row tailors of 2020 by Esquire. The editor of The New Statesman said: “She has
a great eye as well as technical expertise as a tailor and I trust her judgement, which is
essential.” Renowned for doing tailoring differently, Alexandra Wood is at once designer,
tailor and stylist. Rather than merely replicating what a customer thinks they want, she
expertly steers them towards braver, sharper and more subtle colourful sartorial choices
that turn heads for all the right reasons, and it may come as no surprise that she is on a
number of her clients’ style speed dial.
There are those who enjoy a game, and there are
those who understand that there is magic in play.
Since 2010, Alexandra Llewellyn has made an art of it.
Designer of beautifully crafted and intricately detailed
games, Alexandra’s work makes play into something
magnificent. From her famed Backgammon boards to
poker sets, and from games tables to card boxes, each
piece is conceived in London before being handmade
by specialist artisans across the UK. Today, Alexandra
Llewellyn’s signature designs — instantly recognisable
for their craft as well as their distinctive style — have
homes across the globe.
