Two years ago, secret preparations for Meghan Markle's royal wedding dress were well underway!
Clare Waight Keller, the designer of Meghan's iconic silk gown, reminisced on Instagram Thursday about the final fittings weeks before the former actress' wedding ceremony.
"The Royal Wedding Dress – Two years ago today I was in the final fittings for a very secret dress," Keller wrote in a caption accompanying several photos from the historic day. "So many emotions were running through me during those months leading up to the big day."
"A wedding dress is one of the most exquisite and beautiful moments for a designer, but also personally as a woman artist, creator there is a lot of sensitivity that flows through the process from the knowledge and understanding of the feelings that you have as a bride," she mused. "It’s a unique point of view when you have been through it yourself, as I did at my wedding to my beloved husband 20 years ago, you remember every moment so clearly and realise the significance of every detail and decision."
"From the heart ♥️ After three truly wonderful years, the time has come to close my chapter at Givenchy," she captioned a black and white image knelt over a garment. "As the first woman to be the Artistic Director of this legendary Maison, I feel honoured to have been given the opportunity to cherish its legacy and bring it new life."
Sidney Toledano, Chairman and CEO of LVMH (Moët Hennessy – Louis Vuitton) Fashion Group, the conglomerate which owns Givenchy, said in a statement at the time, "I want to warmly thank Clare Waight Keller for her contribution to Givenchy’s latest chapter."
"Under her creative leadership, and in great collaboration with its ateliers and teams, the Maison reconnected with the founding values of Hubert de Givenchy and his innate sense of elegance," Toledano said. "I wish Clare all the best in her future endeavors."
Keller has previously shared that being part of Meghan's wedding to Harry in such an integral way “will truly be the most memorable moment” in her career.
