Navy blue silk party ensemble

Susanna Williams won Young Designer of the Year at the 1982 Benson & Hedges Fashion Design Awards for this four-piece party ensemble. She was also a model at the awards, and was backstage when her name was called out. A first-time entrant, her design - a four-piece navy blue silk party ensemble that included a swishy skirt and bouffant-sleeved blouse - was modelled by former beauty queen Delyse Nottle.
