Also in my list, I included a dress from the Spring Summer collection of Alexander McQueen, Sarah Burton's debut. Underneath, I wrote: "unlikely but I can dream right?"
Front page of the Sunday Times this morning was the story that Sarah Burton is designing Kate's wedding dress. The Sunday Times is no The Sun, or Daily Mail, the newspaper actually researches their articles so I'm not taking this as rumour. I'm taking this as fact.
Our future Queen will get married in McQueen.
Sarah Burton actually designed Camilla Parker-Bowles daughter-in-laws' dress in 2005, so why Burton's name was not mentioned more is completely beyond me. It's pretty much a "doh" moment isn't it? Word from McQueen camp is staunch denial but they cannot comment until the Palace does and the big dress will not be revealed until the big day.
McQueen's show is on Tuesday so expect more denials and "no comments" from Burton and her team.
As for the dress, it's very unlikely it'll be quite so avant-garde as McQueen. Obviously it will be white, probably quite traditional so as not to cause a big fuss but I imagine it'll have lovely details, maybe embroidery, an interesting cut perhaps? We will have to speculate for now until the end of April. This wedding suddenly got more interesting.
