Suzanne Neville Unveils the 2016 ‘Songbird’ Collection at HM Tower of London
Last month saw Suzanne Neville showcase her 2016 Songbird collection with an exclusive event at HM Tower of London. The exclusive three day show gave Buyers and Press from all over the world the chance to preview the collection before its launch in September. The three day event was a huge success and we can’t wait to show you the new 40 piece collection. Here is a little behind the scenes peek….
I have really enjoyed designing the 2016 ‘Songbird collection’. It is a fusion of beauty, tradition, modernity, yet still classically couture. There are simple styles, some lace and exquisite embroidery for a very eclectic mix of styles, with a dress for every bride. There are many dresses with the trademark corsetry, but also softer dresses for the more relaxed look.
In 24 years, I’ve seen styles change, but our modern bride is a very different bride. She’s more aware of fashion, watching many images from all over the world and collating an idea in her mind of her perfect dress and styling the wedding of her dreams.
Over the years, the company has grown, yet we truly believe in keeping the production in our studios in London under my watchful eye, so we can make sure every dress has the attention it deserves. Every year, even after all this time, Im still inspired by the brides themselves. I make sure I connect with the brides whilst toiling them so I can make sure the fit and construction is perfect for their figure and taking all this knowledge into my pattern construction for future collections.’
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped create the show, from those who contributed so generously to the goodie bags to the dressers backstage, we couldn’t have done it without you.
The 2016 Songbird collection will arrive at a stockist near you from September
