Wedding dress Megan Markle - plagiarism

Adjust Comment Print

There is, perhaps, a modern morality tale at its heart.

Emilia Wicksted, outfits of authorship which is so fond of Kate Middleton, in an interview with the Daily Mail newspaper alleged accused Clare waight Keller, who sewed wedding dress for Meghan Markle, the fact that she copied one of her creations.

On May 25, The Daily Mail quoted Wickstead as saying Markle's dress was similar to a £7,000 ($9,319.67) gown.

Seems highly doubtful to me that Emilia Wickstead would talk so critically & publicly about another designers work/very high profile client. For the day after the wedding, an interesting decision was made to post pictures of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in their finery. "I also have a deep respect for Clare waight Keller Givenchy - for me this is a huge source of inspiration".

Britain's Prince Harry speaks to his bride, Meghan Markle, during their wedding ceremony at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle in Windsor, near London, England, Saturday, May 19, 2018.

Now, Wickstead has released a statement, denying ever making the comments about the royal wedding dress and saying she is "extremely saddened" by the reports.

The New Zealand-born fashion designer posted a statement to her social media on Sunday evening (May 27). On Net-a-porter alone, in the three days following the wedding, full price sales on Givenchy had increased tenfold.

The designer's statement saw almost a thousand commenters leave their thoughts on the post, with some feeling Emilia's comments weren't sufficient.

Once the furore dies down, she may find little damage, and there will probably be fans of Meghan, and of Wickstead herself, who find her Helene a more affordable alternative.
