Update: our insider was correct! Indeed, Sarah Burton designed Kate Middleton’s dress for the Royal Wedding!
Previously: The fashion world is abuzz with the word that Sarah Burton, the new creative director at British fashion house Alexander McQueen, will be designing the wedding dress for the royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Designing the dress for Middleton is a once in a generation opportunity for any designer. Burton, who was Alexander McQueen’s right hand before his suicide last year, will likely never again have the chance to have her work scrutinized by so many.
For now, the people at Alexander McQueen are remaining quiet on the subject.
