Opulent Lace Suzannah Cocktail Dress hits Grazia

The opulent 1940’s inspired one shoulder dress is an investment piece to take you for cocktails, to black tie affairs, weddings and fabulous occasions for seasons to come. A fabulous piece to last treasure for decades .

Tailor made in London from the most divine and opulent french gold lace with a hint of the richest Damson and styled with a neat patent belt to enhance the waist.

The dress looks most sumptuous when worn with the rabbit fur cover up and styled with micromesh tights and almond toed patent court shoes, more delicate shoe boots work too.

The gorgeous dress is captured amongst some of the best party dresses for the winter chosen in this weeks Grazia. We’re also loving the Polka Dot smock from Charles Anastase!..x

Perfect cocktail party dress with a hint of retro nostaligia…x

How to be dressed from head to hem in vintage nostalgia…
Feeling in need of a fabulous fun party dress that will lift your mood and appetite for naughty, almost childlike fun…

I’m loving the combination of simple silhouettes with wonderful complementing textures this season.

The perfect collar cocktail dress has a fabulous quilted quirky peter pan collar, in silk twill

the body and skirt are tailored from silk gazar, and then simply and elegantly trimmed with a black waist ribbon.  Fun, cute as a button, flirty and playful with side pockets and a magical rounded silhouette to the skirt part. The inspiration and love for this dress most obviously and definitely comes from my love of vintage Chanel.

Teamed with a vintage fur stole or neat fur cardi..

and topped with the fabulous and magical gold sequin pill box and must have platforms from Miu Miu! to die for…. what to put on those fine pins?

opt for Flake micro mesh fish nets if you want to be bare legged but still covered in some way or an easy smooth opaques…x

Designer label Suzannah launches Bride

Vintage couture meets Alice through the Looking Glass…….

Bride by Suzannah is a romantic new collection of charming vintage-inspired wedding dresses with a whimsical twist for wedding belles everywhere.  Fairytale dresses with a sprinkling of magic for beautiful breathtaking brides.  The Suzannah label is already well known in the industry for fashion to fall in love with.  Designer Suzannah Crabb’s amazing quirky couture party and cocktail dresses (that she designs from her boutique in Little Venice, London) have already been worn by Jasmine Guinness, Sophie Ellis Bextor and Hollywood actress Julie Christie.

Designer Suzannah says ‘I created my new bridal collection inspired by the current shift in trend that we are seeing.  Brides are moving away from wanting a traditional wedding dress and are choosing instead to invest in more of a unique ‘special’ dress to take them from the ceremony to the last dance. A dress they can also wear again to a party or special event. They dream of a luxurious statement dress which is charming and playful and makes them feel like them!  A dress to treasure for years to come and a fantasy to make hearts melt’.

Bride by Suzannah has been designed to bring out the inner black and white screen siren combined with the whimsical humour and magic of Alice.  The collection includes a range of stunning signature dresses that take their inspiration from the flirty flappers of the 1920’s through to the swirling romance of the 70’s.  Each dress has its own heritage with every element of the gown carefully produced and designed to be its ultimate. The pieces are made from luxurious couture fabrics which have a “ready couture sentiment”.  Bride by Suzannah dresses are designed to be bought off the peg, or if fittings are needed the process is designed efficiently so that the dress is ready to be collected within two months.  Deliciously warm inspired neutrals of rose quartz tinted ivory, clotted cream and warm white fill the colour palette on premium silks and lace from Italy and France. The print has been designed exclusively for the label and is produced on the finest Italian chiffon from Lake Como.

Editors Notes: Prices are from £650-£2500

Bride by Suzannah also includes vintage pieces from the 1920’s through to the 1970’s to accessorise with the dresses specifically sourced by Suzannah to be worn with the collection. Millinery and hair accessories have also been designed to be worn with the collection

Tea Cup Fifties Dress

So excited that this dress has finally happened.

Developing the prints and producing them on just the right base cloth can sometimes take such time,..tooing and froing to Italy.

I have had this dress in my mind for so long,  getting so impatient ,..but developing everything from scratch sometimes

requires more patience than my fashion mind allows.

However here is the Tea Cup Fifties Dress , ready just in time for the spring sunshine.

Our geniuses on Lake Como have achieved wonders with the new Italian silk cotton fabric . It is so light to the touch,  printing our

beautiful fine artwork has seemingly added to the nature of it.  The dress looks and feels like a dream and wonderful to wear.

As fine and light as a china tea cup and hopefully a classic dress which can be treasured for years.

Corseted, seamed and padded in our Boudoir style the silhouette has become dreamy and romantic but yet has an edge

which makes it versatile with various footwear m from 70’s wooden sandals through to fun brogues and simple peep toes too.

You can wasp it in with a hard belt or leave it simple , styled only with your hands in the pockets while you dream along.
