Susie Cave, Founder & Creative Director of The Vampire's Wife, has described her unique and distinctive creations as subversive femininity. And so it is that in 2016 Susie Cave created a small fashion brand in her hometown of Brighton, England, with this intent in mind. The Vampire's Wife has gone on to capture the imaginations of the most esoteric of artists, actors, musicians and culture icons to becoming the favourite brand for the British Royal Family. The HRH Duchess of Cambridge wearing the Emerald Falconetti Dress for the Princess's first official portrait was the defining fashion moment of 2022.
Susie Cave, wife of musician Nick Cave, has spent her life in the fashion industry modelling for the great fashion houses including Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior, Vivienne Westwood, and photographers Nick Knight, Guy Bourdin and Dominique Issermann. This profound understanding of the mechanics of beauty is woven deep into the fabric of The Vampire's Wife. Susie won Harpers Bazaar Woman of the Year Award for Best Designer and The Vampire's Wife signature dress, The Falconetti, was voted by British Vogue as The Dress of the Decade.
In addition to www.thevampireswife.com, the brand is carried by the world's best purveyors of luxury including Harrods, Net a Porter, Matches Fashion, Liberty of London, Selfridges and Moda Operandi. Susie's uniquely authentic world of contradiction and intrigue, memory and mystery continues to enchant the world. The Vampire's Wife has grown into a lifestyle brand with dresses, ready-to-wear, accessories, bags, jewellery, knitwear, homeware & luggage.
