Wedding dresses by Sassi Holford

Designer Profile

Sassi's clientele is definitely more society than celebrity, and in 2008 Sassi Holford was commissioned by Canadian Autumn Kelly to design the wedding gown for her marriage to Princess Anne’s son, Peter Phillips. The wedding took place at Windsor Castle, and Peter was the first of the Queen’s grandchildren to tie the knot.

Sassi’s 2013 Signature Collection focuses on creative detailing with stunning appliqué, eclectic layering that features vintage lace, silk poult and a very exciting 3D guipure lace. The re-emergence of the statement fashion accessory, such as hair pieces and costume jewelry, has been translated by Sassi into feature detailing.  She uses belts, bows and tails enhanced by diamanté appliqué and brooches to give her clients the perfect finishing statement. For 2013 we shall definitely see more brides opting for a long sleeve look – perhaps a lace jacket that can be removed for the evening.
