The Duchess of Cambridge’s Wedding Dress was designed by Sarah Burton, Creative Director at Alexander McQueen.

The design shows the influence of Victorian dress in details such as the cinched in waist, the padded hips and the bustle at the top of the train. The dress also looks to the aesthetic of the Arts and Crafts movement with the dress’s emphasis on hand-crafted detail. These historic references are blended with a modern cut in a modern fabric – satin gazar. More
