Designer’s Spotlight: The Vampire’s Wife

Actress Ruth Negga

The Vampire’s Wife is a brand that has been seen all over the red carpet and at many A-list events. The brand has been praised for producing romantic dresses that are festive for almost any event.

Before the official launch of The Vampire’s Wife, its dresses were regularly seen on the red carpet. British model Daisy Lowe, actress Ruth Negga,  actress Dakota Johnson, actress Lily James, and supermodel Kate Moss have all been photographed at high-end events in the brand’s clothing.

Creator Susie Cave is the wife of Australian musician Nick Cave of Nick Cave and the Black Seeds. She is a former model who has been the face of Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, John Galliano, and Vivienne Westwood. Susie’s days as a model have made her a legendary London “It-Girl.”

She expresses that the initial start of her brand was as simple as needing something to wear.  She wanted garments that were feminine and delicate, and when she couldn’t find any, she decided to create her own. The name of the brand was taken from a book that her husband planned on writing but never finished. Susie took a liking to the name and thought that it was very catchy.

She describes the inspiration of her clothing as a mixture of her love for costumes,  Russian ballet, art and literature, and architecture. The silhouettes are reminiscent of the 1950s, with streamlined ruffles and delicate ribbon-ties. Susie’s goal is to produce beautiful and affordable clothing for every woman.

Today, The Vampire’s Wife has a full collection and ready-to-wear clothing available for everyday women. They premiered their first collection last year after having dozens of red carpet successes. And even though it’s a hit, the brand is still a new fashion line. We’ll keep a close eye on The Vampire’s Wife’s progress.
