The stunning and elegant gown was created by the acclaimed British designer Clare Waight Keller. Last year, Keller took the position of Artistic Director at the historic French fashion house Givenchy, which made her the first female Artistic Director there.

Ms. Waight Keller’s timeless class and aesthetics as well as impeccable tailoring made the bride choose one of her creations.  

The British talent has previously served as the creative head of two globally influential fashion houses – Pringle of Scotland and Chloé. Ms. Waight Keller closely worked with Meghan on the design.

The dress, made of silk cady, is the perfect example of a timeless minimal elegance that the iconic House of Givenchy represents. It features a graphic open bateau neckline that beautifully frames the shoulders and elegantly accentuates the waist.
