How former journalist Daisy Knatchbull launched a new first on Savile Row

The Deck tailors suits for women only

The female tailored suit no longer raises eyebrows in the way it did when YSL shattered conventions in the 1960s, but it still makes a statement. After all, it was only this year that Savile Row welcomed its first shop front exclusively for women.

The Deck is a female-only tailoring house founded in 2019 by former fashion journalist Daisy Knatchbull. In what Knatchbull called a ‘fantastic opportunity to start a new venture’, the tailor opened the 3,000 sq ft space at 19 Savile Row this autumn with a focus on creating modern suiting for women with a made-to-measure service based on four timeless styles.

These signature silhouettes are fully customisable, with a choice of more than 7,000 high-quality cloths and unique finishing touches, such as bespoke lining, buttons and monogramming.
