Kate's New Designer, Upcoming Engagements, William and Kate Barbie's + More

We will next be seeing Duchess Kate on Tuesday ((February 21st) She is scheduled to visit The Art Room's classrooms in Rose Hill primary school and Oxford spires academy school. Royal fever is already mounting in Oxford with hundreds expected to line the streets when Kate meets children from the school. Clare Keep, The Art Room manager said

"We are absolutely delighted The Duchess is coming to see what we do. The students will be presenting the Duchess with a bunch of flowers and showing her their work. This is an enormous endorsement by Her Royal Highness".
It is expected the visits will begin in the morning time. So looking forward to seeing Kate interacting with children again, they warm to her so easily.


In celebration of their one year anniversary, Barbie - makers Mattel will be releasing William and Kate barbie's. The Kate doll wears a miniature version of the iconic Alexander McQueen wedding dress while William is smartly dressed in his red military jacket. Aimed at adult collectors the dolls can be pre-ordered for £99.

 Kate will also be immortalised at four branches of Madame Tussauds in April. Waxworks of Kate will grace four different branches of the world famous museums. The figures will each be wearing a different dress. What do you think of William's waxwork? :)


Exciting news for fans of Kate's style. The Duchess has reportedly asked Bosnian designer Emma Hadzic of British based label La Luna London to create new pieces for her wardrobe.The brand is aimed at a younger clientele and has been worn by actress Cameron Diaz. 

UPDATE: Despite the numerous reports claiming Kate had plans to order pieces from Emma Hadzic, La Luna London Facebook Page just posted this. (With many thanks to What Kate Wore)

A pity but perhaps the Duchess will work with Emma in the future.

The collection comprises of elegant, limited edition, ladylike pieces. Available from £200 to £1200 at fashion web retailer Asos.

Twenty eight year old Emma Hadzic prides herself on ignoring trends and instead focusing on using classic materials and designs.

Emma like Kate favours lace, I expect we could see the Duchess in something like this.

Very similar to Kate's Temperly 'War Horse premiere' dress.

Breathtaking evening gown.

The structuring is amazing.

I cannot wait to see what Emma creates for Kate, no doubt they will be very similar if not identical to some of the pieces shown. If you wish to purchase these stunning dresses Click Here.


Designer Rebecca Taylor has revealed Kate also favours her fashion label. 'Kate wears our clothes but we can't gift them, so just this week I received a check with an invoice number straight from Buckingham Palace. I love Kate's style'. 

Three looks from the 2012 pre fall collection.
