Meghan Markle's chosen designer


Share This Article:

The date and venue are now set for the wedding of the year. The next big question is: who will Meghan Markle choose to design the dress that takes her from TV star to superstar?

Many names have been discussed, but the first to emerge from the fray with designs and a credible link to the event is Israeli designer Inbal Dror. TMZ claimed last week to have obtained several designs from the designer for the newest Royal's big day. If the rumours are true, then Meghan is planning to make quite the statement on 19th May.

Here's our need-to-know guide about the designer whose name is suddenly on everybody's lips. 

A graduate of The Shenkar Fashion Art Academy, Dror's fellow alumni includes Nili Lotan, who worked for Ralph Lauren and Nautica before establishing her own label, and Alber Elbaz, who designed the now-iconic forget-me-not blue Lanvin packaging.

With the Academy ranked within the top twenty best fashion schools in the world, Dror's pedigree is second-to-none, a foundation she has only built on since establishing her own label specialising in wedding dresses.

Whilst Dror's gowns can only be purchased from two London boutiques in the UK (Kathryn Trueman and Morgan Davies), she has benefited from celebrity endorsement from none other than Beyonce. Queen Bey has worn Dror's designs twice when collecting nine Grammys in 2016 and on her 2016 Formation World Tour.

With celebrity fans like this, it should come as no surprise that these wedding gowns are not for the faint-hearted. Dror herself has stated that they are for confident brides who want to make a statement - which certainly describes Beyonce, but is the Queen of England ready for this?

Dror's gowns tend to be figure-hugging, leaving little to the imagination of the congregation. Often featuring plunging necklines or low backs, they are certainly a departure from the fairytale dress Meghan wore on the set of Suits, or the Sarah Burton design the Duchess of Cambridge chose in 2011.

Happily, many of Dror's dresses feature sleeves, a trend the Royals tend to embrace in their wedding dresses, possibly for religious reasons: tradition dictates that one's shoulders should be covered up in church. And given that Meghan's dress will be scrutinised all over the world, one of these gowns will ensure there is interest at every angle.

We can already imagine the photos down the aisle with a gorgeous back like this!
