Style critics and tabloids are keen to find out the tiniest details about the wedding dress of Kate Middleton. As one of the most sought-after subjects of the moment, it launched a multitude of speculations. First everyone is curious about the actual designer of the gown, then we’re looking forward to explore the style, length together with extra details.
This time, the newest royal wedding gossips claim that Kate Middleton’s dress designer is finally revealed. Sarah Burton, as the creative designer of the high class fashion house Alexander McQueen, Bruce Oldfield and even Alice Temperley were only some of the most prominent style gurus as potential designers of Kate’s gown. However, this time the list is completed with another name that might not sound that familiar to the audience.
Sophie Cranston is the mastermind behind the stylish Spanish label Libelula. The beloved designer who won the Designer of the Year Award at Graduate Fashion Week in 1999 and who also worked for Alexander McQueen envisioned a bridal collection that apparently won the heart of the princess-to-be.
Fans have the chance to find out this super-intriguing detail of the royal wedding from Yvonne York, the royal correspondent of Huffington Post. In spite of the fact that Kate already flaunted her fondness for this brand by wearing a stylish velvet coat by Libelula for a wedding last year, she still managed to keep the name of one of her favorite bridal gown designers in secret.
Yvonne York claims that, “From what I’ve uncovered – the reason the palace did not announce the designer’s name (as they did with the Emanuels who were confirmed just one month after Diana’s engagement) was to protect Cranston and her family from media scrutiny for as long as possible, and to allow her the freedom to create the wedding gown of Catherine’s dreams without additional pressures and distractions.” Furthermore, another fascinating information is leaked according to which the gown won’t be the sole creation of Sophie Cranston, as Kate had also some precious ideas that contribute to the success of the designing process.
The Daily Mail also reveals that the bride-to-be also designed a dress on her own created following a Renaissance art pattern decorated with pearl button details, 10ft train and produced of ivory satin and lace. If the news is plausible, we’ll have the chance to spot a truly mesmerizing and unique royal bridal gown.
