Fashion experts were delighted when new tailoring house Sanne presented its first collection of 2018 at Carlton House Terrace. It was Sanne’s first combined mens and womens collection and designer Lena McCroary was more than happy with the way the event went.
“Dark colours, mostly blacks and navys make up the base of this collection, along with using a lot of crystals,” she said. “I used elements of crystal embellishment in my previous collection, which was received very well by my customers. Soon after this, an opportunity arose to design a bespoke piece for Celine Dion for her Vegas show so, thinking of what would reflect the stage lights best, I created a three-piece crystal pinstripe suit for her. I had so much fun designing it I decided to do a whole collection for both men and women using crystal embellishment.”
