As previously reported, British-born designer Clare Waight Keller designed The Duchess of Sussex’s wedding dress. She sat down with ITV to discuss the dress and the process.
ITV – The designer who created Meghan Markle’s wedding dress said she was “truly privileged” and “flattered” to have been asked.
Clare Waight Keller continued it was an “enormous honour” to have been given one of fashion’s most coveted jobs ahead of the royal wedding.
She added that the “momentous” task left her feeling “enormously proud” when Meghan “looked absolutely stunning and radiant” on her wedding day.
The designer revealed that following the ceremony, Prince Harry told her that he thought his new wife “looked incredible”.
Ms Waight Keller added that it was “an extraordinary thing to observe the whole ceremony” and see the “love in their eyes during the ceremony, it was just the most beautiful, poetic moment.
“I’m so proud to have been part of it.”
Givenchy’s Artistic Director said that when she was approached with the commission in January, the now Duchess of Sussex already “had an idea of what she wanted” and the pair “worked very closely together”.
The 47-year-old said she wanted to capture the former actress’ “modern, fresh” style in the dress, but also make her “feel absolutely incredible in the dress and also I wanted her to feel like it was absolutely right for the occasion”.
