HISTORY OF GRESHAM BLAKE
Gresham and his wife, Fal, launched the Gresham Blake brand in Brighton at the height of ‘cool Britannia’ in 2000. Since then, Gresham’s eye-catching creations for high profile clients including Ray Winstone, Steve Coogan, Jimmy Page, Plan B and Norman Cook (aka FatBoy Slim) have brought him fashion industry recognition and an ever-growing army of customers attracted by his signature combination of quality garments with a quirky twist.
Gresham grew up in Royal Tunbridge Wells, inheriting his needlework skills from his mother, a talented seamstress & art teacher. His mum’s influence on his career direction was evident early – by the age of four Gresham was already using his tailoring & design skills to create apparel & matching accessories for his Action Man Collection. After briefly considering a career as a sculptor, he went on to study Fashion at Brighton University, following in the footsteps of former alumni, Barbara Hulaniki.
ABOUT OUR BESPOKE TAILORING
We have a highly experienced & creative tailoring team who are passionate about the Gresham Blake brand. By listening closely to our client’s needs & requirements we are able to design and create clothing & accessories that are truly personal to them (bespoke & made to measure).
We only use the best cloths from British mills & carry an extensive range, we also design and weave our own in house fabrics, which are not available anywhere else.
If you are looking for something completely bespoke to you, Gresham offers an in-house design service, allowing us to create suits from anything & of anything imaginable.
“For too long tailoring has been thought of as an elitist and, frankly, a bit stuffy. We want to make it accessible, friendlier – Whether you’re a businessman or woman, banker or builder” – Gresham Blake.
