The colorful hats donned by guests from various field, the grand dignified Westminster Abbey, the cortege with royal riding on the horses, and the royal couple as well as the kisses on balcony, everything was impressed. Whats more, we are all obsessed with Kate Middletons wedding dress which was kept as the top secret. Who is the designer? Yes, it is Sarah Burton, the creative director of Alexander McQueen. So here lets see the detail of this eye-catching dress. The Design The lace appliqu for the bodice and skirt was hand-made by the Royal School of Needlework, based at Hampton Court Palace. The lace design was hand-engineered (appliqud) using the Carrickmacross lace-making technique, which originated in Ireland in the 1820s. Individual flowers have been hand-cut from lace and hand-engineered onto ivory silk tulle to create a unique and organic design, which incorporates the rose, thistle, daffodil and shamrock. The dress is made with ivory and white satin gazar. The skirt echoes an opening flower, with white satin gazar arches and pleats. The train measures two metres 70 centimetres. The ivory satin bodice, which is narrowed at the waist and padded at the hips, draws on the Victorian tradition of corsetry and is a hallmark of Alexander McQueen’s designs. The back is finished with 58 gazar and organza covered buttons fastened by Rouleau loops. The underskirt is made of silk tulle trimmed with Cluny lace. The Fabrics French Chantilly lace was .bined with English Cluny lace to be hand-worked in the Irish Carrickmacross needlework tradition. All other fabrics used in the creation of the dress were sourced from and supplied by British .panies. The choice of fabrics followed extensive research by Sarah Burton and her team. The Royal School of Needlework The Royal School of Needlework (RSN), based at Hampton Court Palace, assisted the Alexander McQueen team in accurately cutting out the delicate motifs from the lace fabrics and positioning the lace motifs with precision into the new design. The lace motifs were pinned, ‘framed up’ and applied with stab stitching every two to three millimetres around each lace motif. The workers washed their hands every thirty minutes to keep the lace and threads pristine, and the needles were renewed every three hours, to keep them sharp and clean. Veil and Jewellery The veil is made of layers of soft, ivory silk tulle with a trim of hand-embroidered flowers, which was embroidered by the Royal School of Needlework. The veil is held in place by a Cartier ‘halo’ tiara, lent to Miss Middleton by The Queen. The Bride’s earrings, by Robinson Pelham, are diamond-set stylised oak leaves with a pear shaped diamond set drop and a pav set diamond acorn suspended in the centre. Inspiration for the design .es from the Middleton family’s new coat of arms, which includes acorns and oak leaves. The earrings were made to echo the tiara. Wedding Shoes The wedding shoes have made hand-made by the team at Alexander McQueen and are made of ivory duchesse satin with lace hand-embroidered by the Royal School of Needlework. After the royal wedding gown being revealed, many fashion experts gave their .ment on Kates choice.
