Richard Wilbraham

100% love it
Tailor-made for London's leather cognescenti and others
Behind-the-scenes scene veteran Richard Wilbraham ran his own clothing label from 1985 until 1990, at which point he started a long-term association with big-name London leather specialists Expectations [see entry]. It was here that Wilbraham honed his skills in crafting made-to-measure leather for the fetish-adventurous (jeans, shirts, chaps, breeches, hoods etc), which he continues to do today — along with textile-etc outfits for West End stage productions and for the pop industry [Kylie Minogue, Little Mix, Steps etc] — in his workship near Waterloo. Wilbraham has maintained professional links with Expectations and with Jonathan Wheatley, with whom he owned Fetish Freak [see entry] between 2006 and 2013, formerly located in Arch 2 of the Hoist. Contact Richard for made-to-measure garments, repairs and alterations done quickly and expertly. By appointment only, Monday to Friday. Mobile phone number: 07852 204839. One-minute walk from Lambeth North tube station.
