Sahara is the creation of Suzy Coppersmith-Heaven, who over the past 30 years has been collaborating with craftspeople and artisans from around the world to produce her ever-evolving clothing collections.
Suzy’s inspiration is derived from her wish to create an individual look not available on the high street. Sahara’s collections are designed specifically for the “real” woman who is so often neglected while so much of the high street favours young, fast fashion.
This, combined with a desire to fuse hand-crafted Eastern techniques with contemporary Western styling continues to be the very essence of the Sahara label.
The strength of the Sahara collection lies in its versatility and ability to complement all sizes. Natural viscose knits and weaves are renowned for their luxurious softness, comfort and drape, and create the perfect wardrobe staple for the fuller figure.
Natural fibres, intricate textural jacquards, wools, linens and georgettes create a fluidity of layered separates in an array of colour palettes created especially for Sahara to flatter a multitude of skin tones.
Sahara’s collections provide an ideal holiday wardrobe. Our natural viscose crepes are derived from wood pulp, allowing the skin to breathe naturally, keeping the body warm in winter and cool in the heat of summer.
Sahara has become renowned for offering a variety of outfits ideal for weddings and special occasions, especially for those who want to find something that little bit different. Sahara's collections have been worn by a multitude of inspirational women around the world, including Dame Judi Dench who wore Sahara whilst attending The 2014 Laurence Olivier Awards in London.
