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 changed with the introduction of LovebySusie Lingerie encompassing beautiful handmade corsets, wedding garters, silk knickers, eye masks, make up pouches and nightwear. With the desire to start a family and the success of the new collections Susie decided to focus now on the accessories side of bridal and an online boutique and would no longer design bespoke bridal gowns.
Susie then increased the range with the launch of LovebySusie Bridal Accessories with a range of silk tulle veils to intricate hand beaded juliet caps and silk flower hair accessories.
Now a mummy herself, there is now also Little Love, a beautiful range of little girls hair accessories, maintaining the sophisticated design ethos of Lovebysusie across a range of hair accessories for little girls and babies.
Handmade in luxury natural fabrics, Little Loves range includes everyday and special occasion hair accessories. The latest collection features genuine leather bows, pretty bow hair clips in the most beautiful colour palette of pastels, neutral hues and soft metallics from rose gold to baby blue and dusky blush pink. Whether it be prettifying your denim dungarees or adding the finishing touch to your party ensemble, these leather bows are so versatile for girls aged 2 years plus.
Little Love also have a beautiful range of occasion wear silk and cotton headbands with unique details ranging from delicate hand cut silk flowers to quirky pussycat and rabbit inspired lace ears, feminine spot tulle oversized bows, and hand beaded silk petals.
Using the finest quality fabrics and trimmings, everything for LovebySusie and Little Love is designed, carefully handmade and packaged by Susie from her home studio in Edinburgh.
