You Can Buy The Duchess Of Cambridge’s Engagement Dress For £130

It’s hard to forget the day that the Duchess and Duke of Cambridge were engaged - and just as hard to forget the iconic blue dress that Kate was wearing at the time.

The Issa dress soon became the fashion sell out of the year, and we can see why, though it didn’t come at a low price - back in 2010 the original retailed at $535 (which would be around £400 at the moment).

But now Daniella Helayel, founder and former creative director of Issa, is giving those of us who aren’t royalty a chance to own it ourselves, after launching a capsule collection with Monsoon.

Featuring 13 of her signature wrap-style dresses, one dress in particular’s similarity to Kate’s engagement frock is uncanny - the Gisele.

With a plunging V neckline, similar waist-cinching design and navy hue, it’s hard to deny that it’s near-identical to the one that Kate wore back in 2010.

Helayel originally dressed Kate for years leading up to the Duchess’ engagement, but sold the label to Camilla Al-Fayed in 2013.

So this new capsule collection is her first step back into the fashion world since, and we’re rather excited.
