Can you remember?
30 years ago today: 23 July 1986 - 23 July 2016

30 years ago today my creative work was unveiled to the world…

When Sarah Ferguson walked down the aisle and married her prince, HRH the Duke of York prince Andrew at Westminster abbey on the 23 July 1986 and became the Duchess of York.

I assisted Lindka Cierach to design and create Sarah’s royal wedding dress, her four bridesmaids dresses for Zara Phillips, Alice Ferguson, Laura Fellowes, Lady Rosanagh and an identical royal wedding dress for Madame Tussaud’s.

After completing two courses in 1985 at The London College of Fashion the first in textile machine embroidery and the second in fashion design I started working as part of a team of three in Lindka’s converted attic studio in Fulham, London as a junior assistant designer, pattern cutter and maker in couture when Lindka was commissioned to make Sarah’s wedding dress.
