Sassi Holford’s Royal Design Prediction

Royal Couturier Sassi Holford is widely known for her classic gowns with a modern twist. At the beginning of the year Sassi designed a new collection of gowns which debuted at the Designer Wedding Show in February.  One design, ‘Grace’, (featured below) represented the style of gown Sassi envisaged Kate Middleton would choose, and it has been proudly displayed in the window of the Sassi Holford Chelsea boutique.  Since the Royal Wedding, the gown has attracted an enormous amount of attention because of the striking similarities that underline Sassi’s royal credentials, having designed Autumn Phillips’ wedding gown. The similarities are uncanny!

Get The Royal Look

The good news is that Kate's look is easily achievable.  Her look is timeless,  very elegant and understated. Everything to complement her beautiful gown was chosen for it's simplicity from the demure Lilly of the Valley bouquet to the Cartier Tiara and Robinson Pelham diamond drop earrings. 

Kate's accessories bear a striking resemblance to Andrew Prince's classically elegant designs.  Known for his timeless designs for discerning brides, these classic pieces are heirlooms in the making.

Andrew's accessories are the perfect compliment to Sassi Holford's Grace gown to achieve Kate Middleton's Royal Wedding Look.

    I absolutely loved Kate's dress and as a new stockist of Sassi Holford, I am delighted to be able to satisfy our brides increasing demand for timeless, elegance with quality lace covering shoulders and arms! The lace V neck is so flattering for many women's shapes. It lengthens the upper body, and flatters a woman's decolletage by providing a lovely balance of skin/lace.

    I have found that our brides absolutely love the idea of passing down heirlooms. I have sourced individual vintage hair accessories by made by Cherished Vintage. The designers find 30's, 40's and 50's treasures and redesign them into hair accessories. No one piece is the same!
