In late 1945, Virginia, Countess of Jersey, who had been a client during his tenure at Lachasse, financed Hardy Amies’ move to 14 Savile Row.
The following January, Amies established his own couture fashion house business: Hardy Amies Ltd. Although Savile Row is the home of English bespoke tailoring, the Hardy Amies brand became known for its classic and beautifully tailored clothes for both men and women.
Hardy’s business quickly took off in the postwar years when customers, who had been deprived of couture for the preceding years, snapped up his elegant, traditional designs.
Hardy was quoted at the time as saying, “A woman’s day clothes must look equally good at Salisbury Station as the Ritz Bar”.
