In the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust’s 30th anniversary year, the charity has joined with Royal Warrant-holding companies in the St James’s area to host a craft trail celebrating their shared passion for British craftsmanship.
QEST Scholar Sarah Wilkinson has worked at Dege & Skinner, one of the oldest, continually operated bespoke tailoring services in the world, for 37 years.
Highlights of Sarah’s career include making the frockcoats for HRH Prince Harry and his page boys for his wedding.and making uniforms for the Yeomen of the Guard, the Queen’s bodyguards. For London Craft Week 2020, Dege & Skinner have received special permission from St James’s Palace to showcase one of these uniforms in store.
