The Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton) first wore the teal-coloured Aspen Gown by Jenny Packham in 2012. Her Royal Highness attended a gala dinner in London ahead of the London Olympic Games (pictured below).
In 2018, the Duchess wore the gown again. This time, to the Tusk Trust Conservation Awards (pictured below). The spectacular dress is a real fan favourite.
About Kate’s Jenny Packham Aspen Gown
The Aspen dress is made from silk and Chantilly lace. It features an ornate lace back, lace cap sleeves, a lace bodice and is embellished with crystals sewn onto a sash.
The original Aspen design is from Jenny Packham’s Spring/Summer 2012 Bridal collection and came in ivory. The designer produced the gown in teal specifically for Kate.
The bridal gown also had a short train. Kate’s dress had this removed.
The style combines an emerald lace bodice embellished with Swarovski crystals and a pleated skirt, ribbon waisted with a crystal and flower embellishment and matching bespoke clutch bag.Jenny Packham
