Stella McCartney Debuts Bridal Collection Off Success of Meghan Markle’s Wedding Reception Gown
The “Made With Love” collection follows McCartney’s limited edition “Made With Love” dress, which debuted in June and was inspired by the Duchess of Sussex’s gown.
Stella McCartney is getting into the bridal biz.
On Tuesday, the fashion designer debuted her first bridal collection, Stella McCartney “Made With Love,” which consists of 17 designs.
McCartney first toiled with wedding wear when she dressed Meghan Markle for her wedding evening reception for her marriage to Prince Harry in May after being chosen by the former Suits actress. The designer attributed the royal wedding to her desire to design a bridal collection.
In an interview with Women’s Wear Daily, McCartney revealed her elation of creating Markle’s gown, saying, “I am so proud and honored to have been chosen by the Duchess of Sussex to make her evening gown and represent British design.”
The “Made With Love” collection follows McCartney’s limited edition “Made With Love” dress, which debuted in June and was inspired by the Duchess of Sussex’s gown. The designer created 46 replica gowns, half of which were available in lily white and half in onyx black and were sold at the opening of the new Old Bond Street store.
The new collection features seven modern dresses, a white and scarlet red jumpsuit and an ivory tuxedo. In keeping with McCartney’s mission of sustainability, the collection will be made of sustainable viscose, as well as couture favorites lace and chiffon.
The collection will only be available in select Stella McCartney stores around the world and at select retail partners — Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Harrods, Net-a-Porter and Selfridges — beginning this month.
