Product Description Kate Middletonâs royal wedding to Prince William on April 29, 2011 will be the fashion event of the century. And with the whole world watching, Kateâs royal wedding dress will redefine elegance and grace for the next generation of royaltyâjust as Princess Dianaâs legendary wedding gown did a generation ago. When British designers David and Elizabeth Emanuel designed Dianaâs dress, they helped her become the most beloved princess in the world. Like Ann Loweâs wedding gown for Jacqueline Kennedy or Vera Wangâs many celebrity wedding dress designs, the gown that the Emanuels created for Princess Di changed the future of wedding fashion. Now, you can revisit the beauty and innovation that went into Dianaâs wedding dress in this lavish, full-color book, written by the dressmakers themselvesâthe perfect way to make the magic of Princess Kateâs wedding story come to life. From the Back Cover July 29,1981âThe Royal Wedding of HRH Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer is one of the iconic moments of the twentieth century. It remains a day embedded in the memory of millions of people around the worldâover 800 million people were watching at home on television. Of all the images from the day itself, the one that springs to mind immediately is that of Diana's arrival at St. Paul's Cathedral in the glass carriage and the public's first glimpse of the best kept secret of the day: the royal wedding dress. For the young designers, David Emanuel and Elizabeth Emanuel creating Diana's wedding dress was "a fairytale come true." Having only been introduced to Lady Diana Spencer in February 1981, the Emanuels quickly became one of her favored designers, which lead to a telephone call in March 1981 that would change their lives forever. Officially commissioned by Buckingham Palace, the Emanuels set about designing a dress that would never be forgotten. Each step of the process was completed in total secrecy to ensure that no one, especially the world's press, got a glimpse of the famous dress until that glorious July day.
