Following 2023’s highly successful outing for Concours on Savile Row, organisers Hothouse Media and The Pollen Estate have announced that the third edition will take place on London’s famous tailoring district, Savile Row on Wednesday 22 and Thursday 23 May 2024.
The unique event drew more than 12,000 visitors to the famous bespoke tailoring street in 2023, with over 40 cars and motorcycles on display from manufacturers and private collectors. The line-up was eclectic and included the debut of two Huntsman-designed Bentleys, a Jaguar E-type art car, a JPS Lotus F1 machine and a number of highly significant cars from private collectors.
Savile Row is the world’s ultimate destination for bespoke tailoring and exceptional craftsmanship, with an ever-expanding selection of made-to-measure, ready-to-wear and complimentary accessories. The event – which is free to the public – celebrates the long history that automotive manufacturers and tailors share, with many partnerships and collaborations entered into over the two days.
Looking forward to 2024, Geoff Love, UK Managing Director of organiser Hothouse Media, said: “The second edition of this unique event established Concours on Savile Row as a key date in both the automotive and bespoke-tailoring calendar. The response to the event from manufacturers, sponsors and tailors has been tremendous, and 2024 will see further innovation as we continue to focus on the opportunities presented by such a special event.”
Jenny Casebourne, Head of Portfolio at The Pollen Estate, added: “The Pollen Estate is delighted to host Concours on Savile Row for a third year in 2024. Savile Row is London’s iconic destination renowned for tailoring, craftsmanship and style, and we are excited to see the new collaborations and the synergies with the car manufacturers come to life. The event is a fantastic opportunity for visitors to go inside the tailoring houses and meet the individual tailors as well as experience the expertise and craft behind a bespoke suit first-hand. Concours on Savile Row is a great addition to London’s events calendar and will showcase the very best of British tailoring to a global audience.”
Concours on Savile Row takes place 22-23 May 2024.
