"Miss Middleton chose British brand Alexander McQueen for the beauty of its craftsmanship and its respect for traditional workmanship and the technical construction of clothing," Clarence House announced. " Miss Middleton wished for her dress to combine tradition and modernity with the artistic vision that characterises Alexander McQueen’s work. Miss Middleton worked closely with Sarah Burton in formulating the design of her dress. The lace design was hand-made by the Royal School of Needlework, based at Hampton Court Palace featuring the rose, thistle, daffodil and shamrock.
The dress epitomises timeless British craftsmanship by drawing together talented and skilled workmanship from across the United Kingdom."
