"Miss Middleton wished for her dress to combine tradition and modernity with the artistic vision that characterizes Alexander McQueen's work. Miss Middleton worked closely with Sarah Burton in formulating the design of her dress," the palace said in a statement regarding Kate Middleton's wedding dress. 

"Miss Middleton chose British brand Alexander McQueen for the beauty of its craftsmanship and its respect for traditional workmanship and the technical construction of clothing," the palace said in a statement regarding Kate Middleton's wedding dress.

Kate Middleton's dress is made from ivory and white satin gazar, and the bodice and skirt feature hand-cut English lace and French Chantilly lace. The train measures almost nine feet long.

Coincidentally, one of our clients wedding dress, in the works since February 2011, looks very much like Kate's dress. Here is a sketch of it.  



Our SACHIKA wedding dress has more of a mermaid shape and is asymmetrical when it comes to the sleeves. The bodice of the dress also has lace appliques in a design aesthetic to cinch the body in a flattering way. However, notice the similarities in the use of the lace on the sleeves, the heart shaped bustier, the lace appliques on the bodice, the ivory color of the dress and the lace placement at the bottom of the dress. 

Overall, the design scheme of both dresses are simple, traditional and innovative and breathe class and time transcendence


Lace is extremely in fashion this season. Notice other designs of SACHIKA's Spring 2011 runway also with lace!
