What’s the story?
Planning a wedding is stressful but everyone wants it to be a perfect lifetime affair. With four months in hand, the situation was similar for Prince William and Kate Middleton. They wanted to sort everything out perfectly and did not want any leakage of information before the big day. However, information regarding Kate’s dress was leaked to the press. And this did not go well with the bride to be. She did everything to keep the designer she had chosen – Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton – secret. The Sunday Times reported: “A fashion source said that the dress will be a combination of Middleton’s own design ideas and Burton’s deep knowledge and understanding of high fashion.”
This incident brought tears to Kate’s eyes as per Katie Nicholl. Speaking on Channel 5 documentary Secrets of the Royal Dressmakers, Nicholl claimed, “Behind the scenes, I think that caused tears at the Palace because Kate had done everything she could to keep the wedding dress a secret.”
The designer denied any involvement before being officially introduced. Although the name of the designer was revealed, the dress was not. And the stunning dress impressed one and all on the D-day. The ivory gown with a satin bodice and lace sleeves – was a huge hit with fashion critics and fans around the world which made Kate Middleton happy on her important day.
Wedding dress designer Caroline Castigliano said, “Everybody loved Kate’s dress. That excitement when she stepped out, it was just ‘wow’.” Burton used traditional Carrickmacross craftsmanship to make the date as perfect as possible. The technique is an age-old one and dated back to the 1800s, to represent ‘something old’. The attention to detail was breathtaking as well which made the dress extra-ordinary.
