Kate's Go-To Designer
ISSA'S DANIELLA HELAYEL
What the future princess wears when she wants to dress the part
Besides the engagement dress, what are your favorite Issa looks for Kate? I have seen her wear mainly our classic silk jersey dresses and gorgeous floor-length gowns in elephant gray and pink. But I don't have a favorite. She always looks refined in the pieces she chooses to wear.
What's the philosophy behind your figure-flattering cuts? Most of my team are women. We all have different body shapes and we all try on each and every design. If a dress doesn't please all of us, I tear up the pattern.
You've been dressing Kate for more than five years. How will her style evolve after the wedding? She is, and will always remain, elegant and chic. I don't believe that will ever change.
