“If done correctly, modern tailoring reflects the playful power of femininity to me,” says Phoebe Gormley, the founder of Gormley & Gamble, who set up her brand at the tender age of 20 in 2014. She started making clothes at the age of 13, inspired by her grandmother, who was an excellent seamstress in her own right. “Taking the suit our fathers wore and yearned to take off at the end of the day—a suit that felt drab, restrictive, and heavy—and reimagining it as something vivacious, powerful, and a little rebellious is my mission,” Gormley adds.
