Age suits Suzanne Harward. This year her label turns 40 and to celebrate she’s released the Suzanne Harward 40th Anniversary Capsule Collection. Featuring effortlessly cool silhouettes and a refreshing range of romantic and whimsical inspired gowns, her latest (and arguably most brilliant) collection is Suzanne’s way of politely saying, “Oh no, I’m not going anywhere”.

Created with the modern, fashion conscious bride in mind these cool, unstructured pieces feature everything we can think of and more – lace, long sleeves, two piece ensembles, illusion backs and necklines plus one rather amazing jumpsuit (which you may have spied in issue seven of Hello May, on sale NOW!) Of the label’s commitment to quality craftsmanship and on-trend designs creative director Brooke Harward says, ¬£For forty years we have hand made all of our gowns under our own roof in Melbourne. We couldn’t call our gowns couture if they were mass-produced and we are so incredibly proud of honouring this ethos for four decades despite continued pressure to produce off shore to compete with the growing number of bridal labels in Australia.”

It’s no small feat but one that certainly sets Suzanne Harward apart from many other designers – none of whom can deny that she is one woman who has made her mark on the wedding world and who shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. The Suzanne Harward 40th Anniversary Capsule Collection is available worldwide through their online store and in-store at their Melbourne studio. Prices start from just $4500 online for Australian made couture. To make a booking simply click here.
