Today I spent some time at the F & T Museum in London. For all those who didn´t know, Tommy Nutter (17 April 1943 - 17 August 1992), was a British tailor, famous for reinventing the Savile Row suit in the 1960s. He was a tailoring rebel who introduced rakish silhouettes and jaunty cocktail-lounge styles to the bespoke classes and the emerging classless celebrities of the Sixties.
Until his untimely death in 1992, he dressed everyone, from the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, to Elton John, Micheal Jackson and Diana Ross, from Sir Hardy Amies and Lord and Lady Harlech to the Duke of Bedford and Sir Roy Strong.
Posh people and rock people, just the way it should be. Designers like Vivienne Westwood and Tom Ford say that they´re still inspired by Tommy Nutter´s way of design.
You can also see some designs and sketches from the great Designer Zandra Rhodes.
