Suzannah: Future Heirlooms

Words By: Charles Edwards-Freshwater

There was a time not so long ago where fashion played a key part in how we were perceived. Of course, this distinction still remains today, but there is something to be said about the sheer glamour of vintage designs that is endlessly enduring, especially those dresses and cuts from the 40’s and 50’s which is the decade where many people believe style reached its zenith.

Though moving forward with the times is the way that fashion evolves to define an era, it’s little wonder that vintage style designs often make a resurgence, especially when enhanced with a contemporary twist that allows them to remain current and charming as well as bringing back the glory of a bygone era. Understanding that making vintage modern was a wonderful way to inject some timeless elegance into the modern fashion landscape. Fashion designer Suzannah founded her eponymous label so that ladies needing classic dresses with a deliciously contemporary twist would know where to go.

Having enjoyed over twenty years of working in the fashion industry as a designer, stylist and trend forecaster, Suzannah has since made a huge impact with her discrete service and impeccably designed gowns, and just a look at some of the pieces available makes it clear as to why. Capturing the enchanting romance of the past whilst still presenting something new and exciting.

This same passion for fashion from the past is imbued throughout her various ready to wear andcouture collections, and it is this individual approach that has led to Suzannah to becoming such a covetable designer.

A wonderful option for special events and occasions such as Royal Ascot, Weddings, award ceremonies and red carpet.  Suzannah’s glorious clothes are also contemporary in their fit and modern day simplicity, toning down the exaggerated measurements of the past and recreating them for the modern woman so that they can be worn to contemporary events with ease.

Suzannah’s fine dresses, coat dresses and beautiful separates have graced the red carpet and Royal Weddings by attracting the likes of The Duchess of Cambridge and her sister Pippa Middleton as well as award winning British actresses Dame Helen Mirren, Emilia Fox and Olivia Colman, and have become a favourite of British Fashion journalists - the smart combination of classic design merged with modern silhouettes  in ultimate cloth make them ideal for every occasion where you want to make an impact for all of the right reasons.

Suzannah has found continuous success in her range of tea dresses which is a signature style for the brand. Formed from luxurious silks and fitted to perfection, the tea dresses offer a traditional 1930/40s silhouette which is perfect for flattering figures of all shapes and sizes. The beautiful soft ‘v’ necklines and longer length skirts are a chic way to capture the elegance of an era that came to define style. With a charming story behind each print these are all personal and created for the Suzannah brand.

Suzannah’s bridal wear takes a similar approach, and as a bride’s wedding dress is one of the most important purchases of her life it makes sense that it is in her bridal wear that Suzannah really puts her most exquisite skills to the test. Catering for the mother of the bride and the bride herself, Suzannah’s elegant ensembles are filled with the same archive couture inspired magic that have made her ready to wear and couture collections so iconic. Every gown focusing on recapturing the romance of the sleek styles that echo a bygone beauty.

Designed to appeal to a bride who wants an understated wedding without all the frills and fuss. The dresses are based on vintage couture classics which are re-invented to draw out the simplicity of their strong, iconic silhouette, whilst being executed in the most divine luxury cloth.
