What Special Occasion Dress Will Be on the Auction Block in London?

Special Occasion DressPlenty of special occasion dresses will be on display at Kate Middleton’s wedding to Prince William – but there will only be one mother of the bride dress.  There is another dress that is making news and it’s not what you may expect.

It’s not a mother of the bride dress or a special occasion dress.  Instead, what is making a buzz is the sheer slip of a dress that Kate Middleton was wearing the night that she first caught Prince William’s eye.  Middleton wore this ‘dress’ that was designed by a design student Charlotte Todd to appear in a fashion show at Saint Andrew’s University.

Middleton wore this ‘dress’ and caught Prince William’s eye.  He immediately began the pursuit of Middleton.

The garment had been stuffed in a closet for years and is now on the auction block.  It will go up for bid in London on March 17th

When the couple announced their engagement in November 2010, Todd was quoted as saying she couldn’t imagine parting with the valuable royal artifact, but she’s had a change of heart.

The dress goes up for bid at La Galleria in London’s Pall Mall on March 17, where its estimated to fetch as much as $16,000.

Middleton wore a black special occasion dress to a friend’s wedding in January and was criticized by the UK press for being too thin and for wearing an ‘unroyal’ black special occasion dress.

Stay tuned to find out more about the wedding of the century and what it means to the special occasion dress industry.
