Susie McKenzie established LovebySusie in February 2007, rekindling a love affair between the elements of cloth, elegance, adornment and the female form, seemingly absent from modern bridal design. Combining the most delicate silk, satins, vintage lace and hand beading, LovebySusie is utterly feminine and truly unique.
Born in Edinburgh, Susie McKenzie completed BA (hons) Degree in Fashion Design at Edinburgh College of Art followed by a MSc in Fashion Marketing at Glasgow Caledonian University. This led to an exciting and inspiring career in Buying Tailoring and Occasion wear for the highly successful luxury High Street brand Coast. During this time, Susie gained vast knowledge and expertise in all aspects of the design, construction and production of exquisite high quality garments.
After six years in London, Susie decided it was time to return to Edinburgh in 2007. Arriving at Bridal Design through a desire for inspiriting change, Susie created LovebySusie Bridal Couture offering a bespoke bridal gown design service. This then led to the introduction of LovebySusie Lingerie encompassing beautiful handmade corsets, wedding garters, silk knickers, eye masks, make up pouches and nightwear. The latest LovebySusie range being worked on is Bridal Accessories from silk chiffon and tulle veils to vintage lace cover ups and silk capelets.
After spending a year and a half in sunny Cornwall, Susie has now returned to her beautiful hometown of Edinburgh with her man and beloved cocker spaniel pup Sherlock!
