'Powerful!' Meghan's go-to designer Roland Mouret claims Kate inspired latest collection

3 mins read


Roland Mouret, 61, has claimed Kate Middleton helped inspire his latest collection. Mr Mouret was also behind the Princess of Wales’ £2,700 black-and-white dress which she wore to the Top Gun Maverick premiere in London back in May.

However, he has been described as Meghan Markle’s go-to designer and established a close friendship with the Duchess of Sussex.

The pair were even snapped together back in 2016 and Meghan wore a Roland Mouret dress on the eve of her wedding in 2018.

Speaking to the Sunday Times, the London-based French designer revealed he is proud that he is “able to do things that can help her”.

He said: “She represents the way a woman grows, the way a woman stands not behind but beside.

“That sense of equality she has created — she’s powerful.”

Mr Mouret also told the broadsheet that he kept the Duchess of Cambridge in mind for his newest collection which will come out in Spring 2023.

Mouret, who described a new orange short-sleeved dress as “Kate’s dress”, said: “To make things that she feels protected in at that moment when the world is looking at her, I’ve done a little part in protecting her.”

However, Mr Mouret’s comments come less than a year after he announced he had put his brand into administration and closed his Mayfair store.

Mouret also let go of his 80 workers as COVID-19 negatively impacted the company.

According to MailOnline, the label had previously survived fears of bankruptcy in 2010.

Mouret generated sales of £16million in 2019.

However, the 61-year-old made a profit of just £950,000.
