Brightonian Suzie Turner trained with a pattern cutter from the age of 15. Specialising in deconstructing antique couture, Suzie took the opportunity to build her made to measure reputation alongside learning her craft. Using the client as her muse and maintaining the traditional ethos of handmade couture, Suzie fits and cuts patterns personally onsite at her Brighton studio, using her team to assist with the exquisite beadwork and samples of her designs.
Suzie’s clients include everyone from brides to actresses and models such as Kelly Brook. The one thing they all have in common is that they appreciate Suzie’s attention to fine detail. In her words, Suzie believes that “Making a beautiful garment should be an event to be relished not stressed over.”
