Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen has become an overnight celebrity after being revealed as the designer of Kate Middleton’s wedding dress at the Royal Wedding this morning. People could not stop asking who designed Kate Middleton’s wedding dress, and being chosen as the person to create Kate’s gown was no doubt a huge honor for Sarah Burton. She has released a statement talking about her experience in designing the dress.
Sarah said, “It has been the experience of a lifetime to work with Catherine Middleton to create her wedding dress.”
Burton was careful not to upstage Prince William and Kate Middleton on their big day and added, “Catherine looked absolutely stunning today, and the team at Alexander McQueen are very proud of what we have created. The dress was just one component of a spectacular day, and I do not think it is appropriate to comment any further beyond saying that I personally am very grateful and honoured to have been given the opportunity to work on this project, and I wish TRH [The Royal Highness] The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge every good wish for the future.”
Sarah was also proud of the fact that they were able to keep Kate Middleton’s wedding dress a secret and said, “Understandably, Catherine has been very keen to keep the details of her dress a secret, which is every bride’s perogative, and we gave an undertaking to keep our role confidential until the day of the wedding.”
