Let’s face it, the last few months have been abuzz with murmurings of the designer behind Meghan Markle’s wedding dress. And while Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, Erdem and Christopher Baily for Burberry have all been on the rumor mill, it seems the stunning bride-to-be has finally made her decision. Enter London-based design duo, Ralph & Russo. Why you ask? Well, let’s break it down. The bespoke Australian label has been tried and tested and let’s just say, they didn’t fail to exceed expectations.
Markle wore a gorgeous £56,000 sheer gown from their 2017 Haute Couture collection for her photo session with Prince Harry shortly after announcing their engagement. And given their distinct aesthetic, were expecting plenty of intricate embroidery and unprecedented elegance. The brand is no stranger to designing awe-inducing wedding dresses. The finale of their spring 2016 show featured a gown that took 6000 hours and 50 people to create. The dress’ train was so heavy that it required a total of six people to turn it at the end of the runway.
The former actress will be wearing two dresses on the big day so many of her favourite designers are still in the running.
