Coming across this Alexander Furnishings shop really brings back memories. My mother used to be a seamstress/ tailor and she used to make dresses. I remember as a kid, I accompanied her on many occasions (in Hong Kong) to a fashion district to buy fabrics, sewing threads, zippers and other accessories etc. Mother and I would discuss and pick out patterns of fabrics and see what fabrics would match well with each other.
Alexander Furnishings is a shop of all kinds of soft furnishings including fabrics, wallpaper, trimmings, curtains, upholstery, cushions, sewing threads and accessories, tracks and poles.
Nos. 51 - 61, Wigmore Street.
