This Suzanna dress and jacket are a beautiful choice for the modern Mother of the Bride. The look is elegant and sophisticated with a definite hint of vintage with a flavour or Christian Dior’s famous ‘New Look’ designs.

Suzanna is made from a heavyweight, handwoven silk fabric to give structure and definition. The luxurious texture of this fabric is a design highlight and is used in contrasting bands cut across the grain to highlight the edge of the bodice and outline of the jacket.

The strapless dress is carefully cut in multiple panels which define the narrow waist and then flare out into a very full skirt. The dress includes an internal corset to give shape and support and to keep you confident and comfortable throughout your busy day. The silhouette is enhanced with a very full ruffled petticoat for a lovely feminine touch.

The matching Suzanna jacket has a short cropped shape and capped sleeves with a neat stand, or fall collar which frames the face.
