Who We Are
ABOUT SUSEY PHOENIXX DESIGNS UK
Phoenixx Designs is a Design Studio .. run by @Susey Phoenixx (MA) - Visual Artist .. working with women over a UK size 6-28 .. Susey specialises in Plus Size Designs .. but caters to all sizes and silhouettes ..
Susey firmly believes in Equality in Fashion and strives to maintain this ethos .. However, due to the time and materials it takes to make a dress .. some designs for larger sizes will be more expensive .. this is unavoidable and wherever possible the prices reflect the amount of work and materials taken to complete the item or garment ..
Susey makes Bespoke Made-to-Measure Hand-Made in the UK designs .. made in her studio in North Wales, UK .. for Plus Size /curvy ladies who find it difficult or impossible to find clothing that suits and fits well ..
About Susey ..
"The current themes I am exploring are 1950s dressing, punk, goth, cyber chick, burlesque, victoriana, and steampunk .. other worldly and all things alternative too and I want more tattoos and piercings .. I am currently experiementing with latex corsets .. latex dresses and accessories as well as corsety in general .. as can be seen by my latex corset and dresses etc" ..
Susey started making clothes when she was about 12 years old .. "I remember it well, as it was a very risque bikini .. sadly, my mum NEVER allowed me to actually wear !! " .. Susey was then asked to customise her brothers friends jeans .. bleaching and dying .. painting on leather jackets for her brothers punk friends .. and her love of fabrics and fashion was born ..her all time favourite designers are Vivienne Westwood; John Paul Gaulter; and Zandra Rhodes .. all old school but brilliant nonetheless .. her current favourite is Iris Von Herpen .. whose designs really are amazing ..
Susey is a fully qualified Fashion Designer with a Masters Degree in shoe design .. making rubber fetish wear as well as other burlesque .. punk .. alternative .. goth .. victoriana .. type stuff .. love handling fabrics .. the trickier the better .. hence my foray in rubber ..
Other interests include Monoprinting .. Linocut Prints .. and designing her own textiles prints ..
Susey is also very interested in Cosmetics Formulating and is in the process of honing these skills to enable her to have her own Vegan Cruelty Free Cosmetics Range .. if you wish to keep up to date on this subject .. please subscribe to this website to receive all the most up to date launches of her products ..
Ultimately, Susey is a creative creature .. who is constantly striving to understand and learn new techniques and skills .. she is currently learning hairdressing skills on a part time basis to enable her to offer her wig setting and hairdressing services .. alongside all the other skills and services ..
Susey has been studying photography since she was 21 years old at Uni .. when it was film cartridges and dark rooms for processing ..
A lot has changed since those days .. and its now much easier and faster to see the results of the days shoot .. hence a lot quicker to learn new things and Susey is loving her journey back into photography ..
Susey has been a hobby photographer for the last 30 years .. but its only in the last 10 years that she has started shooting her Latex Fashion Garments on some truely lovely models .. who have shown patience and understanding when things did not quite go to plan!!
Susey has her own home studio in beautiful North Wales 40 mins from Liverpool .. with a number of backdrops and a chaise longue for a more vintage look .. her house is situated very close to rural wales .. with waterfalls and streams trickling down the mountainsides ..
Susey runs the Phoenixx Group Shoots in both Nottinghanm and North Wales .. but due to prolonged illness .. has had to postpone these events until further notice .. there are both a facebook page and group page for this event .. so when it is next up and running .. Susey will post in these groups ..
