Stella McCartney releases her wedding bridal collection. UK fashion designer extraordinaire, Stella McCartney has just released her first ever bridal wear collection which lets women purchase a dress inspired by the wedding gown that Duchess Meghan wore to her reception when she married Prince Harry back in May.
The 46-year-old fashion guru has created her own 17-piece range that is entitled Made With Love and it includes a €4,000 halter neck dress similar to the stunning Stella designed outfit the American actress wore to her wedding reception at Frogmore House when she married Prince Harry.
Unveiling her inspiration behind the fashion range to Vogue in the UK, Stella said: “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.
“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 €800 (approx)
Each item has been made in line with Stella’s own environmentally-friendly beliefs with each garment created using sustainable viscose and every outfit contains a blue tag sewn inside featuring a personal message from Stella that is intended to act as the bride’s “something blue”, one of the four wedding dress traditions.
The limited edition collection is available in select Stella McCartney stores worldwide as well as from Net-a-porter.com, Selfridges and Harrods. Stella is the daughter of Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney and admitted she was “humbled” when Meghan, 37, chose her to make her reception dress for her nuptials to Harry, 34, and it’s an honour she will always remember.
She said: “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.” Incidentally, the Givenchy wedding gown that Meghan wore to say her vows to the British royal was created by Clare Waight Keller.
