Kate Middleton Chooses Wedding Dress Designer
With the royal wedding coming next Friday, April 29th, there is much talk about what the famous bride will wear. The current topic of debate involves the speculative wedding dress that will be worn by Kate Middleton, the fiancé and soon-to-be wife of Prince William.
Former thoughts have given the title to Alice Temperly, and Bruce Oldfield, but the most conclusive seemed to be Sarah Burton, the current creative director for Alexander Mcqueen. This decision was praised by the journalistic and fashion community. "Telegraph" fashion director Hilary Alexander even stated that, "If this is true it's the best news the fashion industry has had in a long time. It is desperately in need of an injection of fabulousness in the wake of the whole John Galliano scandal." Burton, however, squelched any thought of this design by telling "Vogue UK" that she was not doing it.
So if it is not Sarah Burton designing her dress, who is it? The newest rumor, according to The Huffington Post, is that Sophie Cranston of the Libélula label is the lucky commissioned artist. According to Yvonne York, the Huffington Post’s wedding correspondent, the dress has actually been in production for approximately four months now. The dress will be partly Middleton’s design, as she will have a creative hand in the process. Kate Middleton was seen in the "Dulwich" coat, designed by the label, just a few months earlier, which adds to the speculation. Cranston is young and hardly established, so if she is indeed the chosen designer, her career will be launched instantaneously.
The dress and its designer will be revealed by means of live stream on the day of their wedding. Until then, the bride, the royal family, and the designer intend to keep mum.
