Princess Eugenie news: Princess left heartbroken as dress designer makes confession | Royal | News

The Princess’ wedding dress designer Zac Posen announced some sad news last week which could see the Royal forced to look elsewhere for a bespoke frock. Mr Posen revealed he will be closing his namesake business after 18 years.

Mr Posen told WWD: “The board made a difficult decision. We were in a sale process and we ran out of time.

“There was a board vote. We had to make the call.”

The talented designer revealed that the company had tried their best to keep the business going but that they had experienced a “tough time”.

He said: “My partners and I tried everything possible within our means to find solutions to keep it going.

“I have been trying to find the right strategic partners at this tough time in retail and in the industry. The clock ran out.”

He debuted his Spring/Summer 2020 (SS20) collection in September but this will no longer be shipped.

Mr Posen decided to share the news on his Instagram in a heartfelt post.

He said: “I want to express my appreciation to our extraordinary team and for all those who have stood by me and the brand.

He also dressed the likes of actresses Uma Thurman and Claire Danes, he also dressed Tom Cruise’s ex-wife Katie Holmes.

He also designed Eugenie’s stunning blush pink gown which she wore for her evening reception on her wedding day.

The dress was reportedly inspired by the beauty of Windsor and the surrounding countryside.

The dress also features a bias-cut, pin-tucked plissé and a blush hue that reflects the colour of the English rose.

Eugenie married her husband Jack Brooksbank in October 2018.

The Princess was the only royal to have a public christening which took place on December 23 1990.

She is also the only one of the Queen’s grandchildren not to be baptised in the traditional Lily Font.

Eugenie is also distantly related to her own husband.

They both share the common ancestor, the 19th century aristocrat Thomas William Coke, the 2nd Earl of Leicester.

The Queen is also related to her husband Prince Philip as they both share a connection to Queen Victoria.
