Sarah Burton Royal Designer of Kate Middleton Gown

Posted by Nina Robinson at Friday, April 29, 2011
The most kept secret of who the actually designer would be for Kate Middleton gown.
 Well, the designer name is Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. Ms Burton said creating the royal wedding dress had been the "experience of a lifetime".

The gown had a lace appliqué bodice and skirt, and veil. The bride wore her hair down, with a tiara.
The lace on the bride's dress details a rose, thistle, daffodil and shamrock, and was hand-made by the Royal School of Needlework at Hampton Court Palace.

The bridal train measures 2m 70cm, and along with the lace, all other fabrics used in the creation of the dress were sourced from and supplied by British companies.
The lace motifs were pinned, "framed up" and applied with stab stitching every 2mm to 3mm around each lace motif.

Workers washed their hands every 30 minutes to keep the lace and threads pristine, and the needles were renewed every three hours, to keep them sharp and clean.

The veil was held in place by a Cartier "halo" tiara, lent to Miss Middleton by the Queen.
