What a fabulous five days of gorgeous weather, racing, dresses and wonderful millinery! We were delighted to have seen so many of our dresses on our lovely customers throughout all five days of Royal Ascot plus the Ascot event; Goffs horse sale at The Orangery in Kensington Palace. Though I’m sure there are many photos we have not yet seen, here are a few snaps from Royal Ascot 2015 so far..x
Here is a wonderful quote from the Queen which sums up the event and how it has changed to be a worldwide recognised spectacle.
“I often reflect on how much Royal Ascot has evolved in recent years. At the turn of the millennium, Royal Ascot was very much a European affair, but now we share the wonderful spectacle with the whole world. We have horses representing many countries in front of an audience, both here at Ascot and watching at home, from far and wide.” – The Queen
A wonderful British ceremony today at Windsor. The order of the Garter parade led by the Queen. HRH Countess of Wessex looked fabulous and effortlessly stylish in her Suzannah couture dress. The 1950’s Influenced Silk Gazar Midi Dress. The wonderful bright green silk gazar dress with beautiful folded pleated skirt looked magnificent in contrast to the sharp neat black silk bow belt and divine millinery by Jane Taylor..x
The striking 1950’s influenced classic silhouette is tailored from the most premium silk twill and lined in silk habotai. The beautiful day dress is a new silhouette for the Suzannah collection and will be featured in other striking prints in the next collection..x
We were absolutely thrilled to have dressed HRH Countess of Wessex on Saturday 9th May.
HRH stepped out in Guernsey and Jersey and represented the Queen for the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Channel Islands.
HRH wore a bespoke colourway of the 1950s influenced midi dress. She accessorized the wonderful outfit with black. We made her a silk couture bow belt, and Jane Taylor made her a wonderful black pillbox.
