ROYAL WEDDING: KATE'S DRESS BOOST TO FASHION INDUSTRY

ROYAL WEDDING: KATE'S DRESS BOOST TO FASHION INDUSTRY

KATE’S dazzling wedding dress is expected to give our fashion industry a pick-me-up, particularly the high-end designer labels that compete with the biggest names in haute couture.

The Sarah Burton creation is receiving plaudits from all quarters for its breathtaking beauty and British craftsmanship.

Many will have been inspired to try the finest clothes this country can produce for themselves.

Sarah Burton, 36, creative director at Alexander McQueen, is well used to show-stopping fashion moments at the label’s catwalk shows, which are not for the faint-hearted.

However, she succeeded in merging intricate traditional craftsmanship with modern-edged design to create the ultimate fashion moment on Friday.
It was a confident choice by Kate to use a designer associated with breaking tradition. She took advice from British Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman, and the collaboration has been welcomed by the fashion industry.

Daphne Guinness, fashion icon and muse of the late Alexander McQueen, described it as “an inspired choice”.

Fashion editor Stephen Mahoney said: “The Kate Middleton dress has catapulted Sarah Burton to a completely different level.

“She was previously in Alexander McQueen’s shadow but has become overnight a designer that will be recognised and respected globally.

“I think McQueen will be forced to have a separate bridal collection from now on to satisfy demand.”

A friend said: “Sarah always harboured the ambition of designing at a high level. She loved the drama of Versace’s clothes and she was conscious that he was a favourite of Princess Diana, Elton John and Elizabeth Hurley.

“To design the dress for the Royal Wedding is sure to have made her dreams come true.”

Kate’s gown captured the modern take on Victoriana that has become the Alexander McQueen hallmark.
