Spice Girls dresses for closing ceremony at London Olympics 2012

Geri Halliwell commissioned British designer Suzanne Neville to create the dress to perform with the Spice Girls, on the world stage, at this once in a lifetime event. The strapless corset dress, designed and created in a red crepe and silk chiffon with a plunging neckline short skirt and union jack bustle detail, is embellished by jewellery designers ‘Halo and co’ with 24 carat gold filigrees and thousands of gold and silver crystals.

Suzanne Neville’s vision was to create a dress which was not only original and exciting, but also encompassed the Union Jack theme made famous by Geri when the Spice Girls won acclaim at the Brit awards in 1997.

Suzanne commented, “As a British designer, it has been a real honor to be part of the Olympics and such a momentous occasion for our country. The closing ceremony is the pinnacle of what has been a incredible two weeks. We should all be very proud, not only of our athletes, but all those involved.”

    Hi Suzanne , yesterday I collected my wedding dress from Karen . I really love it … I am delighted with the way that you and your team have made my dress . It is stunning and really beautiful …I was made to feel very special by the ladies at wilmslow and indeed by yourself when I had the pleasure of meeting you in Harrow for my corset fitting . I cannot tell you how happy I am .. You have made my day so much more special .. To any future brides thinking about making a choice I could not recommend Suzanne and her team headed by Karen in wilmslow more highly …
    Thank you so very much from an excited bride to be x
