About Timothy Everest
Two decades ago, Timothy Everest had a hunch. “It was the early 90s, and everybody had gone through the whole “designer” and “brand” thing,” he says. “I felt like I could introduce a new generation to the joys of handmade clothing – investment pieces that were built to last.”
His hunch proved right. Twenty years later, Everest presides over a bespoke tailoring business with clients ranging from art dealers to accountants to rock stars, whom he encourages to dress as (in) appropriately as they wish. “There’s no house style,” he says. “We’re about individuality, and expressing your personality through style, shape, and all the quirky little details that make each commission unique.”
Everest’s infectious enthusiasm for his art, and his magpie sensibility, has led to a broad and diverse range of creative collaborations over the years. He has created costumes for movies including Atonement, Mamma Mia, Eyes Wide Shut, and Mission Impossible. He has dressed celebrities for the Oscars, designed the British Olympic Team uniforms for the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, and styled Mick Jagger for his performance at the Grammy Awards in 2011.
