British fashion designer Bruce Oldfield – the late Lady Diana’s favourite designer and tipped creator of Kate Middleton’s wedding gown – will present two of his bridal dresses at Los Angeles’ Britweek to celebrate the royal wedding this month.
The designer has loaned the Lorna and Morgan dresses for the exhibition in the LA Neiman Marcus store from 26 April to 10 May 2011.
Britweek is an annual event – now in its firth year – that celebrates all things British in Los Angeles from film and TV, music, fashion, food, sports, art and designs, and business innovation.
With Prince William and Kate Middleton’s royal wedding only two weeks away, it comes as no surprise that this year’s theme is all things bridal.
While Kate has yet to reveal who she has chosen to make her dress, Bruce has revealed that the brunette beauty will look stunning on her big day and predicts her dress to be “modest”.
Bruce said: “I’m sure the dress is going to be modest in terms of coverage – it has to be. It will have sleeves, it has to have sleeves. You can’t walk down Westminster Abbey in a strapless dress. It just wouldn’t happen. It has to suit the grandeur of that aisle, it’s enormous. I can predict she will wear a veil.”
So there you have it. According to Bruce Oldfield the dress will be grand, have sleeves and Kate will wear a veil. Has he just given away the design of the wedding dress of the century because he’s designed it?
