Fox Donates To Newham College For Tailors Of The Future

Date Added: 25th Oct 2011

As an Associate Member of Savile Row Bespoke, Fox's Managing Director Douglas Cordeaux was one of the special guest speakers at a private showing of 'Tommy Nutter: Rebel on the Row' hosted by Newham College London and Savile Row Bespoke Association at the Fashion & Textile Museum on Wednesday 19 October.

At the event attended by students and apprentices, Fox announced that it is to provide Newham College with cloths woven at what is now the last remaining mill weaving true 'West of England Tweed' and flannel in the West Country, to help in training their students to become leading tailors.

Since forming a partnership in 2006, 200 students have completed the Savile Row sponsored course at Newham and more than 30 former students are now employed on Savile Row.
