Little did we know when the October wedding of Princess Eugenie was announced she would turn straight to the 1950s for inspiration.
In the early to mid 1950s the shawl collar became fashionable – that’s a collar which wraps around a V neckline and is either small in depth or wider often flaring over the shoulders too.
Like her mother Sarah Ferguson on her marriage to Prince Andrew in 1986 she wore a tight bodice and wide flared skirt also very 1950s in inspiration.
But this very modern royal chose to deliver a message in the back V.
With thousands of eyes upon her she said “I’ve got one too” to all those with scars from Scoliosis surgery for curvature of the spine.
The new Mrs. Brooksbank had a hands-on approach to the silk Jaquard fabric designing symbols woven into its cloth meaning something to her as a woman.
A tight bodice, drop shoulder and full skirt can fulfill romantic dreams on the big day for not just royals but anyone.
Congratulations Princess Eugenie we hope ‘something borrowed’ from the 1950s brings you a lifetime of love and luck with your new husband.
