Savile Row tailor Edward Sexton dies

Edward Sexton, a British Savile Row tailor, fashion designer and industrial consultant, died on Wednesday. He was 80 years old.

Sexton co-founded his Nutter’s of Savile Row brand with another British tailor, Tommy Nutter, in 1969. The brand name was changed to Edward Sexton in 1976.

The British tailor has had decades working with high-profile clients such as Andy Warhol, Elton John and Naomi Campbell.

Most recently, Sexton has considered Harry Styles as a client, creating the wardrobe for the pop star’s first solo concert tour, “Live on Tour,” in 2017. Sexton also dressed Rick Astley for his performance at Glastonbury in 2023.

In 2022, Sexton opens shop in collaboration with British interior designer Daniel Hopwood.

Born in Dagenham to a family of tailors and seamstresses, Sexton began his journey in the fashion industry when he left school at the age of fifteen to work with tailor Le Rose in a workshop on Commercial Road in the East End of London.
