In July 2017, the Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton) wore a green dress by German designer Markus Lupfer to an evening reception at a 100-year-old ballroom in Berlin. It’s the designer’s Wild Sparrow Pleated Arabella dress in teal.
About the Markus Lupfer Arabella dress:
The sleeveless blue-green dress features a high neckline and a pleated midi-length skirt. It is decorated with a sparrow bird print.
On his website, the designer describes the dress as having “intricate pintuck pleating with a high neck and flattering midi length skirt.” The dress is made from a 100% polyester georgette fabric.
Markus Lupfer told InStyle Magazine that the wild sparrow was one of his key motifs for the season.
“We created this print in-house, it was hand drawn and painted to create more character and personality. The Crystal pleating technique created a flattering, modern silhouette.
