Be Meghan Markle for a day, through Stella McCartney’s new bridal line.

by Mee Jong

Now you can be Meghan Markle for a day.

To be specific, her WEDDING DAY!. I mean, thank Stella McCartney . Now you can follow Meghan Markle’s footsteps, of course without the parade, the horse, the media attention, the palace, and Prince Harry waiting ahead.

Last night, I received a link to an article.  “Stella McCartney” “Bridal” caught my eyes. I clicked on it and immediately forward the images to my chat group with my sewing classmates. Why? Because we are a group of ladies that talk about patterns, sewing, fabrics, and who wore what.

Part of me was so jealous of Stella McCartney as a woman who designs sustainable fashion items, even more, jealous when she designs bridal gowns for a living. Another part of me was so joyful that these dresses are available for the public! Well, a financially blessed public.

What happened?

Stella McCartney, known as a sustainable fashion brand, launched its very first official bridal line “Made with Love,” and I wish I’m a bride now. Simple and timeless is how I would describe this line. There’re no layers of lace appliques, bling bling embroideries, fluffy tulle if those are what you are looking for. However, if you are looking for a sophisticated urban silhouette, this is a collection worth trying on. On top of the name and high quality as the brand promises, you are also contributing to the brand’s motto of being fashionably sustainable. A beauty that doesn’t come with the sacrifice of nature. The price range, from my research, are around 900-5,000 USD. I considered it to be affordable for wedding gowns. A global brand with this level profile would usually break your bank for a dress to be worn for one night. I have pinned some dresses on Pinterest that would cost me a house in the suburb of Bangkok. Therefore, 5,000 USD for a wedding dress is really generous of McCartney.

Here’re some photos from the collection.

On the side note, do you agree that the model reminds you of McCartney herself? There’s a theory that people are usually attracted to someone looking like them. I have no idea if McCartney chose this model herself, but it was just a cute thought that maybe she was reliving her bridal experience while designing and shooting this collection.
