Cranston is Kate Middleton's Dress Designer!

Huffington Post’s royal’s correspondent, is reporting that Sophie Cranston has designed Kate Middleton’s wedding dress. Middleton famously wore a vintage-inspired black velvet coat by Libélula to a wedding this past January.

Sophie Cranston, 34, worked at Alexander McQueen and Temperley before starting her own label in 2002. In 1999 she won London’s Designer of the Year Award at Graduate Fashion Week.

The reason the palace did not announce the designer’s name (as they did with the Emanuels who were confirmed just one month after Diana’s engagement) was to protect Cranston and her family from media scrutiny for as long as possible, and to allow her the freedom to create the wedding gown of Catherine’s dreams without additional pressures and distractions.

But the design won’t be purely Cranston’s as Middleton herself has had a hand in the design. The Daily Mail is reporting that Kate Middleton designed the dress almost entirely herself with Cranston serving merely as the dress maker.
