Suyamba Kumaresan

/sʊjɑːm.bɐ/ /kʊm.ə'reɪ.sæn/

Suyamba is a budding Bespoke Tailor and Designer based in London, currently working on fully launching a sustainable and ethical self-named brand, which will be donating 10% of all profits to charity.

Now, she is undertaking an apprenticeship at Kent & Haste as an Undercutter to build her bespoke cutting and fitting skills by working closely with and learning from the head cutters/owners.

Suyamba Kumaresan received a 1st Class Degree from the BA (Hons) Bespoke Tailoring Course at London College of Fashion, part of University of the Arts London. On that course, she had the opportunity to explore both men's and women's bespoke tailoring whilst studying, learning intricacies from both the design and make aspect. With traditional Savile Row construction methods combined with aspects of modern style and artisanal detail, she produces pieces with a strong sense of ethics and sustainability. The explorative uses of fabric, cut, and components, plays with combining the best of classic British tailoring with a contemporary design aesthetic that reflects, enhances, and calibrates the figure in an unusual way, aiming to bring a new generation of tailoring for all.

Starting out as an Assistant Seamstress at Stephanie Allin in Swansea, Suyamba then spent some time as a Trimmer at Timothy Everest Spitalfields, London to compliment her studies in Bespoke Tailoring. She also worked as a Pattern Cutter & Merchandiser at Charles Moore Bespoke, London, before working at Kent & Haste.
