WELL, with the arrival of a new little prince the hot topic this week, it felt only fitting that we should be celebrating the very talented British designer and a favourite of The Duchess of Cambridge, Jenny Packham.
Yes, Kate and Wills’ third baby was born on Monday and the eyes of the world’s media were all on Kate as she graced the steps of St Mary’s Hospital, Lindo Wing, to introduce us all to the new royal.
It was no surprise that Kate’s choice of dress for the big occasion was by London-based, British designer, Jenny Packham – now Kate’s designer of choice, having also worn her creations to introduce George and Charlotte.
And once again she wore a classic shift, but this time in red, as a fitting tribute to William’s mother Princess Diana, who donned the same colour to introduce her second son Harry to the world at the same venue back in 1984.
It is no secret that Jenny Packham collaborates with Kate on her dresses for many special occasions; her elegant gowns so often the perfect choice for Kate’s red carpet events.
It leaves us all Googling ‘that dress’ as the Kate effect works its magic, as she stuns the world’s media with such grace and elegance, in yet another stunning creation by the iconic British designer Jenny Packham whose designs are always so perfectly on-point.
Born in Southampton, Jenny Packham is a graduate of the city’s Solent University and world renowned Central Saint Martins.
The London based designer first founded her brand in 1988, launching a collection of ready-to-wear evening items, before adding bridal wear in 1997 and today her collections include ready-to-wear, resort, bridal, accessories and lingerie.
