I’m always on the lookout for companies that cater to tall woman. Today we’re taking a look at an upcoming brand called Grace & Altitude. I had an opportunity to reach out to the founder of Grace & Altitude London, 6’1 Dupe Odunsi, to get a feel for what’s to come this year.
What is Grace and Altitude?
G&A is a tall womenswear brand based in the UK. We design and manufacture contemporary but timeless pieces which are cut and tailored to fit a tall frame. At G&A, tall women finally take center stage and there are no clothing compromises to be made!
Why was it created?
G&A was created out of pure necessity. Although there are existing tall retailers, there remains a lack of modern, chic, thoughtful, and well made clothing in the marketplace that suits the lifestyle of a modern, independent, working woman who has a strong sense of personal style. At 6’1, I personally was tired of trawling the high street and coming home empty handed. I wanted to create a collection which tall women can rely on and a brand they can trust.
We aim to launch for AW15 and will reveal the exact time closer to the date. I, unfortunately, can’t give any sneak peeks at this time, but keep an eye on our social media and blog over the next few weeks to get the first peeks!
Our aesthetic is based on clean lines, modern functionality, soft tailoring, and understated chic. Our pieces are versatile, easy to wear, easy to mix and match with an existing wardrobe, and work from season to season.
To add: I’d like to thank everyone who’s been following us, commenting, making suggestions, and giving us feedback on all our social media. The response to G&A has been amazing, and I hope people continue to follow our progress and look out for our launch later this year.

Don’t forget to follow G&A on all of their social media platforms for news and other tall friendly content. And while waiting for the launch, make sure you go to their web site to sign up for their mailing list to be the first to know when the launch occurs and additional G&A news.
I’m super excited to see what’s to come and to support another tall beauty!
