How to create a wedding dress Megan Markle
On Saturday, May 19, in the chapel of St. George in the territory of Windsor Castle in Berkshire, the wedding ceremony of Prince Harry and Megan Markle took place. The bride’s dress was designed by British designer Claire Waite Keller, who now occupies the post of creative director of Givenchy. She came up with a laconic silk dress for Megan and a 5-meter long veil with embroidered flowers – symbols of 53 countries of the Commonwealth of Nations.
The designer described how she worked on the outfit of the new princess of Great Britain. According to Claire White-Keller, she wanted the dress to reflect Megan’s personality first and let her feel great in it. She described Prince Harry’s wife as a sincere, warm, dazzling and truly strong woman. For simplicity and modernity, the dress was answered by a material – two-layer silk-qadi.
Above the dress, veil and shoes of Megan Markle and the outfits of flower girls worked a total of 50 people. It took about four months to create the attire. Also, Claire noted that she did not have an absolutely classic wedding dress and this says a lot about Megan Markle as a woman. Before the work on the dress, the designer and the bride never met, but Claire followed Megan’s work – especially at the UN – and always admired her.
“It’s a great honor for me to have the opportunity to work with Megan Markle for such a significant event,” said the chief designer of Givenchy, Claire Waite Keller, “we wanted to create a timeless image that will emphasize the Givenchy codes for many years, and pass the present through clear lines and cuts.On contrast, the delicate beauty of flowers on the veil, which we made with a special meaning, stands out because the flora of all 53 countries of the Commonwealth is on it. “
The length of the veil, attached to the ancient diamond tiara was five meters, it was sewn by hand silk threads. Embroiderers, who worked on it for many hundreds of hours, washed their hands every half an hour to keep the pattern and silk tulle in its original form.
In addition to the Commonwealth flora, Megan Markl chose two personal favorites. Symmetrically located on the front of the veil of wheat spikes, symbolize love and charity. The design of the wedding shoes was inspired by the collection of Haute Couture Givenchy spring-summer 2018, and they were made of silk.
By the way, the shoes of the little bridesmaids were created by Megan Aquazurra’s favorite shoe brand, each date and girl’s name is indicated on each pair. It was a wedding gift, as were ivory gowns made of radzimir fabric with a double silk ribbon at the back, also created by Claire White Keller and the designers of Givenchy House. The wreaths for the tiny satellites of the ceremony were made by the florist Philippa Craddock and used the same flowers for them as for the bride’s bouquet.
An interesting detail – Megan Markle made memorable gifts to the adult bridesmaids, as well as to the Duchess of Cambridge. To do this, she ordered six gold bracelets Zofia Day from the jeweler Lisette Polni.
