"It's not been easy, but you always have to stay focused on what you believe, there has been times of struggle and when I felt tempted to follow what others were doing to drop prices and sell more, I stayed true to my goals and I realised that's not who I wanted to become, I wanted to see my designs looking at their best; so I never compromise on the quality of the fabrics used."
Susana´s Haute Couture Atelier is located in the heart of Cranada, Spain and has been established since 1995, a project she embarked on her own after creating collections for Cibeles, Fimi and Gaudi.

As a part of this collection, the designer and entrepreneur has recreated this classic dress, to pay homage to some of the most iconic outfits Marilyn Monroe has wore in the past. In this edition we present; La Tentación vive arriba (temptation, lives on top), a redesign of one of Monroe’s most memorable outfits incorporating 50 style into the 21st century “Fashion and cinema have a very intimate relationship; Marilyn Monroe’s style is still alive and will last for generations to come as it is an authentic spirit” Poyatos quoted. To create this dress, Susana has utilised delicate Silk satin with halter bodice and a pleated skirt, allowing for that same beautiful flowing motion depicted in the “Flying Skirt Photoshoot”. One of Monroe’s most emblematic moments. The design with its open shoulders defines a sultry silhouette which brings back the sensuality and classy style of the 50’s incorporating the authenticity and femininity of the 50s era
