Wait... Is That Kate's Wedding Dress?


A couple blogs ago we talked about Kate Middleton’s dazzling wardrobe and how you can dress like the new duchess, not the dress is being replicated and sold to the public! However, making that wonderful dress is not the easiest task to create, but Raul Echeverria and his team at Alterations Boutique in Marylebone, London. Kate’s dress was designed by the late Alexander McQueen new team leader, Sarah Burton. The McQueen dress was made from the finest ivory satin and lace that was made with handcrafted flowers for that McQueenish spin. To prep for this replica Echeverria had to buy 33ft of lining, ten meters of Tulle for the veil, ten meters of netting 15 meters of satin and four meters of lace. This was not a cheap shopping trip; the total added up to $1,700. Since they did this amazing work in 5 hours they had no choice but to buy lace accented with flowers already. The dress is being replicated all over! But they must have permission from the house of house of Alexander McQueen to copy such a historic piece. Although the dress isn’t as over the top as Princess Diana’s, (beautiful fairytale themed gown designed by Elizabeth Emanuel with huge puff sleeves and a 25 ft. train.)  it is indeed a magnificent gown that is making major headlining news and trends!
