Stella McCartney launches her first ever bridal collection - with a look-a-like of that Meghan Markle dress
Stella McCartney's debut bridal collection is the epitome of sleek sophistication. The how, why, when and where you can peruse the pieces and have your own royal wedding moment
Stella McCartney has launched her first ever bridal collection - which contains a dress inspired by her most famous bride, Meghan Markle.
The legendary British designer has created a 17-piece range entitled Made With Love, and, unsurprisingly, its hero piece is a white halter gown similar to that worn by the new Duchess of Sussex on her wedding day, retailing for €4,000.
and it includes a £3,500 halter neck dress similar to the stunning Stella designed outfit the American beauty wore to her wedding reception at Frogmore House when she married Prince Harry in May.
"Having been a bride myself and honoured to make wedding gowns for some of my dear friends, it's something that I feel very passionately about. I really do see it as one of the biggest privileges as a female designer to know that women come into our stores and buy pieces to wear for the most important day of their lives," she told British Vogue.
"I think that the house of Stella McCartney represents something a little more effortless, and that's incredibly reflective of the bride and her personality and what she wants to wear even outside of that important day."
The Made With Love collection contains seven dresses in total, including a cape dress, along with a lace jumpsuit and some tailored pieces with prices starting at €770.
Each item has been made in line with her environmentally-friendly ethos with all the garments created using sustainable viscose and every outfit contains a blue tag sewn inside featuring a personal message from the designer hat is intended to act as the bride's "something blue".
The limited edition collection is available in Ireland, exclusively at Brown Thomas, as well as in select Stella McCartney stores globally as well as from Harrods, Net-a-porter.com and Selfridges.
Earlier this year, she said she was "humbled" when the former Suits star chose her to make her reception dress for her nuptials to Prince Harry, describing it as an honour she will always remember.
"It has truly been one of the most humbling moments of my career. I've made a lot of wedding dresses for a lot of high-profile people - none as high-profile as that obviously - but I've always felt very protective over that moment and to be entrusted means a lot to me," she said.
The Givenchy wedding gown that Meghan wore to say her vows to the British royal was created by Clare Waight Keller.
