Kate Middleton's engagement dress was the the most in demand outfit of 2010 and now the timeless gown is back in stock.

Six years ago Kate gave her first ever televised interview as she announced her engagement to William.

With her soon-to-be husband by her side, the Duchess sparkled on-screen, almost as much as her sapphire engagement ring, with perfectly complemented the royal blue hues of her silk-jersey dress.

The £575 (€663) style sold out instantly – one of the first instances of the well-documented ‘Kate effect’ that’s since gone on to generate a frenzy around Kate's outfit choices.

However, founder and former creative director of Issa, Daniella Helayel, has reprised her infamous design for a more purse-friendly price tag of €155.

The designer launched a capsule collection with Monsoon, featuring 14 of her glamorous wrap dresses, including the Gisele which bears a striking resemblance to the Issa silk-jersey version that Kate wore six years ago.

There are plenty of Middleton-inspired designs in Monsoon's collection, including a printed knee-length dress which is similar to the one Kate was photographed in back in 2007 and an emerald green cap-sleeved outfit, which is similar to the one Kate wore before her wedding in April 2011.
