“She was an original 1990s It girl — now Susie Cave has her own cult fashion brand that’s revitalising women’s wardrobes the world over. She tells Fiona Golfar about love, marriage and the rise and rise of The Vampire’s Wife. ‘It seems my dresses have coincided with a certain moment in time as bold, proud statements of female beauty,’ smiles Susie Cave as we chat together over fresh mint tea at The Lanesborough hotel.” Taken from an interview by Fiona Golfar, Evening Standard Magazine, February 2018.Read the full interview on standard.co.uk

"I've been a fan of Susie since I met her when I was seventeen backstage at a John Galliano show. She was kind, pale and had something so unique. I was awestruck by her. I love the dresses they're incredibly elegant and feel beautiful to wear.
