Suzanne Harrington Bride has been making bespoke wedding dresses for modern brides since 2012. Peppered with various historical references – from 1970’s bohemia to the Edwardians – the label is known for its soft fabrics, craftsmanship and imaginative design ideas.
To create their dream wedding dress, clients either arrive with an idea fully-formed or discover it by exploring the brand’s collection of different shapes and styles. Their unique design is then sketched out, a toile is made and fitted and then the dress is handmade to measure in Walthamstow, East London.
The label’s signatures. Magical gowns and accessories that are relaxed, comfortable, free-spirited and above all, a natural extension of their individuality. Hand-made and completely bespoke, the label uses ethereal fabrics, intricate laces, dreamy and bohemian touches with a softer, more natural approach to silhouette. Artful cutting and tailoring flatter the body. Dresses draw elements from history and reimagine them for the modern bride. Gowns amplify the bride rather than eclipsing her, and are superbly comfortable.
Key styles. The Darcy and Lola two piece – a sheer, long sleeve fitted button-back top and full skirt. The Ophelia dress - a highly feminine dress with a mix of 70s and Edwardian elements, with a train, angel sleeves and open back. The Indira and Tillie two piece – a delicate lace top with short cap sleeves and an open back, with a full tulle skirt. The Flora dress – a sheer lace top with a fitted under-bodice, contrast colour velvet belt and floor length skirt.
Suzanne Harrington founded her label in 2012. Suzanne studied fashion design at Ravensbourne College of Art and explored the history of the wedding dress as her final year thesis.
She is inspired by Dior, Vionnet and Chanel. Over the last twenty years she has worked in New York, Australia and London and founded her label to bring a new attitude to bridal design.
Suzanne lives in Walthamstow, East London with her husband Steve and Banksy the miniature Schnauzer.
