The dress of all dresses, Kate Middleton’s wedding dress, was almost certainly the best-kept fashion secret, like, EVER. Now, after the wedding itself, more details are emerging as to just how Sarah Burton kept her name and the design under wraps for so long.
It seems that even the people creating the dress might not have known what they were working on. According to Us magazine, the McQueen seamstresses were told that they were creating a dress for a film, rather than for the wedding of the decade. Also, less surprisingly, when Sarah Burton went to Buckingham Palace to piece the various components of the dress together, she worked with assistants, all of whom had signed secrecy agreements.
Grazia Daily can’t help but feel this is only half plausible – it only makes sense in a world where McQueen seamstresses never read the papers or watch the news (rumours abound that Sarah Burton is asked to design The Dress; you end up stitching masses of ivory gazar.) Surely SOMEone must have twigged, right?
