Meghan Markle's Wedding Dress Designer Reveals New Details About Making the Dress

Clare Waight Keller, the former Givenchy creative director who designed Meghan Markle‘s wedding dress, is opening up with new details about the process of creating the look.

Meghan‘s wedding to Prince Harry was almost two years ago and Clare is reflecting on the big moment in her career.

“Two years ago today I was in the final fittings for a very secret dress. So many emotions were running through me during those months leading up to the big day,” Clare wrote on Instagram. “A wedding dress is one of the most exquisite and beautiful moments for a designer, but also personally as an woman artist, creator there is a lot of sensitivity that flows through the process from the knowledge and understanding of the feelings that you have as a bride.”

“It’s a unique point of view when you have been through it yourself, as I did at my wedding to my beloved husband 20 years ago, you remember every moment so clearly and realize the significance of every detail and decision,” she continued. “In so many ways you are capturing dreams, that as a girl and as you become a woman you will have been thinking about for years. Learning to let go of my emotions and embrace the feelings of someone you are designing for brings about an incredibly beautiful relationship of trust and intimacy.”

Clare also talked about her bond with Meghan.

“Through hours of conversation, meetings together, and research, slowly all the pieces of that story came together. Purity and simplicity were the guiding principles, a narrative of nature through the 53 florals of the Commonwealth to bring the world into the journey of the ceremony and subtlety bringing the lines of Givenchy and the history of the Maison to capture the classical timeless beauty i knew she wanted to achieve,” she wrote. “It was obvious the significance of this occasion was more than any other, it would be a very personal ceremony with so many choices that would reflect both the bride and grooms heritage and their unique way of being incredibly inclusive, genuine and generous.”
