Meet The Locals

Jonathan Quearney
Tailor

Jonathan first learned about tailoring as a boy, helping out at his father’s bespoke tailoring business in Dublin. His love of cloth and cut led him to Savile Row, where he trained at the likes of Airey & Wheeler and English Cut, diligently mastering his craft.   Once Jonathan began to cut his own bespoke silhouettes, demand grew quickly for his subtle but individual suits, and he opened his first shop in Fitzrovia over a decade ago. Today, the master tailor travels the world serving a global clientele, while his brand is set to launch its first ready-to-wear capsule collection. We spoke with Jonathan about how Fitzrovia has evolved since he’s been here, and what it means for his business.  

Ian Rosenfeld
Gallerist

Ian Rosenfeld and his co-director Dario Porcini founded their Rathbone Street gallery, Rosenfeld Porcini, in 2011. As directors of Italy’s prestigious Galleria Napoli Nobilissima, the pair wanted to set up a gallery space in London, and felt drawn to Fitzrovia’s dynamism and energy. Back then, Rosenfeld Porcini was one of just a handful of galleries in the area. Today, Fitzrovia is one of London’s most exciting art hubs, and Ian’s is one of its best-known galleries, with a proudly international outlook and a commitment to showing contemporary artists from around the world.   We spoke with film-maker, photographer and gallery director Ian about how he considers Fitzrovia to be a ‘leitmotif for London’, how the neighbourhood has evolved since Rosenfeld Porcini arrived on the scene, and where to find authentic Genoese fare in the capital (yes, it’s in Fitzrovia).
