Fashion friends: Suki Waterhouse and Emilia Wickstead

'She adds a zest to my designs'

Is it just us, or did Suki Waterhouse play a fashion blinder this week at the BAFTA Britannia Awards?

Thought not.

So we put in a call to Emilia Wickstead, who created the custom design, to get the scoop.

‘I first met Suki years ago when I cast her to model for my second fashion show, which I held at the very beginning of my business,’ she tells us. ‘It was for friends, family and a growing client base – before showing during fashion week was even a thought, but rather a huge aspiration.’

How serendipitous, then, that now Suki is rather a Big Deal herself she’s walking those dresses right onto the world stage (along with fellow Big Deal and Wickstead fan Kate Middleton, of course).

The creation that she wore was a bespoke Swarovski pearl beaded piece that Wickstead explains is ‘similar to what was on the runway for my spring/summer 2014 collection, but with exclusive elements’.

‘I thought she looked effortlessly beautiful,’ she adds.

‘She adds a sort of zest to my designs and I love that. She is incredibly cool and fun – something I hope is always typical for an Emilia Wickstead woman.’
