Kate Middleton’s wedding dress is sure to be the most talked-about outfit of the year – and the woman tipped to design it yesterday showcased her latest collection.
Sarah Burton’s show for the Alexander McQueen label at Paris Fashion Week had a white theme running through it – and included a swan-like frock with distinctly bridal overtones.
The 29-year-old bride-to-be has so far plumped for British designers on her official engagements. Prince William’s fiancee yesterday chose a coat by British designer Burberry for the couple’s first official appearance in Northern Ireland.
The blue dress Kate wore when the couple announced their engagement became an instant high street hit.
And the designer who lands the job of designing Kate’s wedding gown for their marriage at Westminster Abbey on April 29 can expect a major boost to their profile.
