As her last look as a commoner, Meghan Markle wore a navy blue dress by Roland Mouret the day before her royal wedding. Now, the French designer is stepping into the bridal world and is crediting the newly-minted Duchess as inspiration.
Mouret recently released his first ready-to-wear bridal collection and it's centered around one thing: sustainability. Speaking to Marie Claire, Mouret explained, “The amount of fabric used for a bridal dress that you’re only going to wear once is a waste of material and a waste of space because you have to immediately pack it away.”
That's why none of the pieces have a shelf-life. In fact, Mouret specifically designed each look to last beyond the wedding aisle. The collection is sleek, simple and sophisticated—perfect for modern brides! Wide-leg trousers can transform into the perfect pair of work pants while one of the white jumpsuits can become the perfect attire for date night.
While the collection includes multiple gowns, the knee-length dresses can also be considered chic rehearsal dinner look or trip to the courthouse.
And while the looks aren't exactly similar to Markle's Givenchy wedding dress or iconic Stella McCartney halter gown, they are reminiscent of Markle's overall fashion sense. Just like her sister-in-law Kate Middleton, Markle is a queen at outfit repeating—proving that no look (including your wedding dress) should be worn just once!
Just in case knowing that Meghan Markle is a fan of this designer isn't enough to convince brides-to-be that this is a wedding collection worth considering, keep scrolling to see each look!
