Alex Jones wears the Suzannah Red Dress on the One Show


Actually by the lovely guy who makes these dresses for us in the depths of Wales!

Alex Jones looked stunning last night wearing a strong quirky dress on the BBC’s One Show.

The red dress from the Suzannah collection was perfect for her personality.

The Boulder Shoulder body con dress in cherry red was from our AW 10 collection,…we currently have purple and olive in stock, and our fabric mill in Italy is

dying a fabulous deep orange and a pillar box red which will be ready for sewing soon: These dresses will be ready by mid march.

We’ve got our eyes on these dresses for a fab night out thinking that they would double up fabulously with a

pill box hat for Ascot! ( Forties in a fabulously constructed modern Herve Leger way peut-etre?)


Liz Jones wears the Classic Camel Coat in You Magazine

The fashion editor Liz Jones was snapped wearing the Suzannah Tie Belt Coat in yesterday’s You magazine.

Looking fabulously dressed down casual-smart.

The man-style coat is perfect for town or country . An easy chic classic inspired by a vintage 40s coat the simple

silhouette is nipped in with tiny pin tucks to give a neat waist and slimline look.

Looks fab with its own belt or also can be styled with a harder leather belt.

Denise Van Outen wears Suzannah at David Walliams’ Wedding

Denise Van Outen wears the 30s Vintage Print Tea Dress by Suzannah

Denise Van Outen looking fabulous wearing the Suzannah 30’s Vintage print Tea dress to David Walliams’ wedding at Claridges.

Looking stunning just after having her baby, she was photographed and featured in the Mail Online and also The Sun.

The dress suits Denise because of the low neckline and smocking detail under the bust to lift and give shape. The bias cut skirt part is gently cut to be sexily skimming, and just above the knee is picture perfect for this season, and baring in mind… too short could look wrong to this event and for her.

Teamed perfectly with strong slick peep toe ankle strap heels, the dress has a nod to the past with a 30s Vintage charm appeal which was perfect for Claridges.

Nathalie Imbruglia was also in a beautifully whimsical dress with a modern grecian feeling which I have since found out by the amazing stylist Karen Clarkson was designed by Phillip Lim.

The Suzannah Vintage 30s Dress was inspired by a piece which I bought at the Porte de Clignancourt market in Paris. The dress was maxi length and had a very stiff base, which made it look incredibly grand!  The print also had gold metallic embellishment. I wanted to take the essence of the piece… the depth and beauty of the print and translate it into a fun, quirky, ageless and season-less dress which would look as fabulous with bare legs, as on Denise… as with ribby Falke tights and strong courts in the winter months.

The tea dress silhouette has become a staple of the collection, I have experimented with different base cloths. Italian Crepe de Chine for a slightly more dressed down look, and silk satin for the Navy colour way to ensure the colours take on enough depth and saturation to look as ‘grand’ as its inspiration.

The five finalists had been picked out of 1,900 entrants on Ladies’ Day by judges, Sheree Murphy, Emma Johnson, Ricky Whittle, Colin McAllister, Justin Ryan, Justine Mills and Lorraine McCulloch and designer Jeff Banks.
