Not tinker, just a tailor in his shed

The South Wales Argus


HIS work was modelled on catwalks across the world and he owned design studios in London and New York.

Now after 50 years in the fashion industry, tailor Ken Williams, 65, continues to make suits from his Abergavenny home.

Mr Williams’ KW label sold in Harrods, Macy’s and Saks Fifth Avenue after learning his trade in Newport. Now he work is from his garden shed; taking private orders for his bespoke suits.

During the 70s and 80s, Mr Williams worked alongside Jeff Banks, the recognised leader of Britain’s fashion industry and the pair made clothes for pop stars.
