Pippa’s wedding: Get the details on her stunning dress by Giles Deacon

Pippa Middleton got married Saturday in a wedding dress designed by British fashion star Giles Deacon, which should help turn him into an even bigger global fashion star:

Deacon, the designer previously renown at home for his quirky-and-populist approach to fashion, is going to be getting more attention now that the world knows he created Middleton’s wedding gown.

Middleton, who wed her fiancee, millionaire financier James Matthews, walked down the aisle in a lace-encrusted confection with cap sleeves, high neckline, corseted bodice and a heart-shaped detail in back, topped by a veil.

Deacon had been tipped in advance as the designer though he kept mum until the day.

In a statement Deacon said he was “thrilled” to work with Middleton. He described the way the dress was made.

“The bespoke silk cotton lace was hand appliquéd to create an illusion of the dress having ‘no seams,'” he said. “The lace bodice is embroidered with pearl detailing over an organza and tulle underskirt, which has layer upon layer to enable a floor-sweeping movement. It’s a privilege to show the craftsmanship that my team produces in London and a real testament to Pippa’s support of British fashion.”

Milliner Stephen Jones designed Pippa’s bespoke veil, which was made of fine tulle with a dégradé of embroidered pearls. The Maidenhair Fern tiara with matching hairpiece was handmade by Robinson Pelham. The shoes were a Manolo Blahnik pump, in an ivory satin with bespoke pearl detailing.

Pippa’s was a semi-private wedding, or as much as it could be given the involvement of Middleton’s royal relations: older sister Duchess Kate of Cambridge, Prince William and Prince Harry, plus her nephew and niece, Prince George, 3, and Princess Charlotte, 2, who served as page boy and bridesmaid.
