Hirsh Tailoring

Brita Hirsch

Macclesfield, England



A german tailor who used make suits for Pavarotti and then technical fabrics for the automotive industry has found her home at the end of the Silk road in macclesfield, once again producing bespoke suits and teaching a new wave of tailors outside of Saville Row.
