CopyKates of the world, get excited!
E! News caught up with Shala Moradi, director of design for Faviana, a New York-based eveningwear company, who tells us her team started creating the dress pattern on Friday and spent all Saturday and Sunday working on it. They "tried to go as close to the original as possible," with some tweaks for the mass market.
What tweaks would those be?
For starters, the copycat train is much shorter than Kate's 8-foot-long stunner.
And while the now duchess' gown was created using handmade lace from English factories, commoners have to settle for regular French lace and bridal satin.
Faviana already sells a gown that's similar to Middleton's reception dress, but the brand re-created Pippa Middleton's much-buzzed-about, figure-skimming Alexander McQueen bridesmaid dress, which features similar details on the sleeves, curve-hugging fit and a row of buttons down the back.
Kate's gown will retail for a mere $1,800, while Pippa's will set bridesmaids back $350—the company is taking orders for both pieces and they'll be ready to ship in eight-12 weeks. No antique Cartier tiara included, sorry, ladies.
Check out the video and tell us, would you say yes to Kate and Pippa's copycat dresses?
