Suzanne Jaberg

"I'm a science geek and love anything to do with astrophysics, microbiology, even mathematics. I also happen to love pretty things. I'm not really sure how I ended up as a designer instead of an astronaut... I followed opportunity, I suppose."


Suzanne Jaberg, or Suzabelle, as her parents call her, grew up in British Columbia where she worked towards a BA in Biological Sciences, intending to continue on the road to medical school. While studying physics and biochemistry, she was continuously drawn to imaginative side projects from large-scale paintings to graphic design and classical music composition.

Upon relocating to Seattle, she soon found herself surrounded by a flourishing art and music scene and was swiftly swept up in the DIY movement of the late 90's, re-tailoring vintage dresses to create high-end one-of-a-kind eveningwear for friends. Working with these incredibly constructed vintage pieces, Suzanne developed a penchant for complex tailored details and vintage influences that continue to inspire her designs today. Suzabelle was founded in the spring of 2005 by Canadian-born designer, Suzanne Jaberg. Now based in Seattle, Washington, the company has developed from a small creative project into a popular and elegant line found in about 80 exclusive boutiques across the US and Canada.

Designer Facts:
The one thing in my closet I would never get rid of is the perfect fitting dress pants. I have a pair that I bought in Paris years ago. They're worn out but I'm keeping them because I want to copy the pattern and make 10 pairs in different fabrics.
