NZ designer popular with Duchess of Cambridge
Fri, 06 Jul 2012 7:31a.m.
The work of a New Zealand fashion designer is proving popular with the Duchess of Cambridge who has again chosen an Emilia Wickstead creation for a public royal engagement.
Thirty-year-old Catherine wore a NZ$2317 pale yellow coat dress in Edinburgh on Thursday as she attended a ceremony where her husband Prince William was installed as a Knight of the Thistle, Scotland's highest honour.
The outfit, complemented by black suede heels and a subtle latte-coloured sisal beret, surprised some British commentators who described yellow - a colour worn in public only once before by Catherine - as an "unusual" choice.
The beaming Duchess carried a folded tartan scarf, a nod to her Scottish title: Countess of Strathearn.
At a May state lunch, British media described Catherine as "pretty in pink" as she wore a pink coat dress designed by New Zealand-born Wickstead, who is now based in the UK.
