The Bridal Buyer Awards are always one that I am immensely proud to win, because they are voted for by the industry. This award is not only about great design but consistency, exceptional customer service and loyalty. I feel honoured to have won it for the third time in my career.
I am delighted to have won this award. Best British Bridalwear Designer is always such a strong category as we have amazing talent in the bridal industry in Britain. It has always been a pleasure to work in this industry alongside designers that I have formed longstanding friendships with.
2018 has been very busy at Sassi Holford, we have been thrilled with the reception of the 2019 collection. It is called The Enchanted Collection and is inspired by nature and romance focusing on texture and light. On a personal level, our (Sassi and Martin’s) twins have been doing A-levels and leaving home making it a very busy summer.
I am excited for what 2019 has in store. Although my first love will always be wedding dresses, at the moment I am enjoying evolving our occasion wear and working on a lifestyle range.
