I've got a shoot coming up in October that I need to get a dress made for - I've always just used wardrobe sourcing companies before but the budget on this shoot isn't necessarily the healthiest thing ever so I need to go direct to the dressmakers this time really.

Has anyone on here had experience with any bespoke tailors in London? Preferably around Soho (as this is where the actress and the shoot location are) or if not, around Old Street sort of area? If so, can anyone give me some recommendations?

I need someone who is as comfortable with sports/tech fabrics as he/she/heshe is with office wear. It's for work to create some prototype clothes for a client. Know anyone?

EDIT - this isn't London-specific but search not working etc
