The Alan Hannah label was established in 1988. In 1990, Alan was joined by future wife, dress designer, Marguerite who took over the reins as creative director and designer of a single bridal wear range while Alan concentrated on accessories.
Success quickly followed and the label went from strength to strength with stockists opened all over the UK and in the rest of the world. By the mid 90’s Alan Hannah was at the forefront of bridal fashion with a string of awards including designer of the year for Marguerite on several occasions.
In the 2000’s it seemed that lots of other designers had moved their production to the far east, but after a lot of deliberation, Alan and Marguerite decided to ensure that the independence and quality of the label should not be compromised and invested in more modern production and training techniques to enable them to continue making the gowns here in London.
In 2009 huge resources were invested in purchasing and fitting out a new bespoke headquarters in North London which was opened by HRH The Princess Royal in 2010.
In 2010 Alan Hannah sister label MiaMia was launched with a very different personality and styling to the main label. In 2014 Marguerite designed a third label, Rita Mae which is a collection of short and T length gowns. Alan Hannah Devoted is our jewellery label which is a collaboration with Jon Richard and is available in all Debenhams stores in the UK.
