Ollie’s tailor-made wish

Ollie has a real passion for sewing and dreams of being a tailor when he’s older.

He wished to meet fashion designer Patrick Grant and we arranged for Ollie to have a special meeting with Patrick.

After being picked up in a vintage Bentley, ensuring that Ollie arrived for his wish in style, he spent the morning with his hero Patrick learning the secrets of the trade and the different roles involved in garment making.

Ollie brought along a prototype of a waistcoat he had been working on to get Patrick’s expert advice. He had been struggling with the buttonholes so Patrick showed him how to get them just right!

Ollie had a fantastic morning and walked away with lots of new skills as well as a wearable prototype waistcoat which he is planning to give to his little brother Theo.
