Monserrat Allen Resort Monserrat
A family of bespoke tailors based in Islington has left their international mark on the fashion scene. I was lucky enough to meet Charlie Allen at the RCA, where we both studied in the 1980s and have later befriended his brothers Johnny, Joe, Ralston and Steve Davies, their adopted Welshman. Mr Allen originally left Montserrat in the 1960s to find new employment and opportunity in London.
The family have always retained a close relationship with the island and community. The project was to establish a group of Eco Villas that family members would use and share for holidays and rest from the busy London life.
