Fashion enthusiasts were awestruck by the reception gown Princess Eugenie wore after her wedding.
In an Instagram post, the gown’s designer, Zac Posen, showed the dramatic back of the dress, a month after the wedding ceremony.
Princess Eugenie tied the knot with Jack Brooksbank at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle on October 12, 2018.
The 38-year-old American fashion designer revealed the back of the dress, saying he did so by “popular demand”. Official portraits from the wedding reception only showed the front of the royal’s rose-blush caped dress.

SUBTLY EMBROIDERED FLOWER
"The back by popular demand, before the final #whiteroseofyork embroidery was placed," Posen captioned the shot, which his team took in his workshop.
The gown’s low-cut, V back design featured several buttons that gathered at the zip and falls into a billowing train.
Windsor and the beautiful countryside surrounding it inspired Posen to create the now iconic design, which also highlighted Princess Eugenie’s long scar on her upper back. She had undergone a surgery for scoliosis.
White Rose of York, considered the family flower, was subtly embroidered on both the shoulder and back of the dress.
IN DEMAND DESIGNER
Royals could go no wrong with Posen, who is also in demand among Hollywood stars.
The designer caught the elite’s attention after launching his eponymous collection in 2001 with a vision for modern American glamour that married couture technique with striking innovation.
London is close to his heart, although he was raised in New York, as he attended London’s Central Saint Martins University in the womenswear degree program.
He has received prestigious fashion awards. In 2004, he was awarded one of fashion’s most prestigious honors, Swarovski’s The Perry Ellis Award for Women’s wear by the CFDA. In 2015, he also received the Designer of the Year award from Women’s Wear Daily and Variety Magazine.
Posen takes pride in his exceptional technique in artisanal craftsmanship, anatomical construction and textile manipulation.
