Melbourne bridal icon Suzanne Harward’s 2017 collection of wedding gowns is here – called “Illuminati”.

“Illuminati speaks to the heart of women who inspire and possess divine enlightenment or transcendent knowledge,” the label says of its collection.

“She glows from within and radiates light wherever she goes. She is powerful, electric and bravely pierces the darkness with her all-encompassing light and warmth. She is unashamedly luminous. She is the illuminati.”

The collection combines metallic accents of burnished gold and silver with white, nude and oyster tones.   Fabrics used in this collection include silk organza and georgette, Italian wool, feathers, sequins, 3D applique lace and neoprene.
