Issa – the label now by royal appointment

19 September 2008



The rumours were circulating that Kate Middleton – the unofficial face of Issa – might turn up on the front row of their show yesterday. She didn't but the royal-watchers weren't disappointed. Princess Eugenie and Beatrice (along with a few hangers-on) made a very discreet entrance and giggled like schoolgirls as photographers rushed to capture their LFW moment. Sweet! But nothing could have prepared us – or the photographers it seems – for the arrival of Miss Middleton. No, not that one but her sister Pippa. Wearing an Issa printed wrap dress she was so swamped by photographers that her minders moved her to the second row slightly more out of the limelight. Could she have been sent as a scout for Kate? Fashion insiders have been whispering about the royal-in-waiting wanting to find a suitable job in the industry for a while now. Well one thing's for sure, she wouldn't have been disappointed by the clothes. There were even prettier versions of their now famous Lucky Dress, featuring sheer panels in the back. Colbalt blues and emerald green silks and chiffon made this summery collection feel entirely wearable. The highlight however was Naomi Campbell and her protégée Jourdan Dunn striding down the catwalk for the final walk with designer Daniella Helayel.
