Royal wedding: David Emanuel relives the incredible story behind Diana's dress

14 APRIL 2011

With such a voluminous dress and such a tight space, how did Princess Diana fit into her wedding day carriage? By having her couturiers push it all in, says designer David Emanuel, who admits he “gasped” when he realised his misjudgement.

The joint creator behind Diana’s iconic gown speaks to hellomagazine.com’s correspondent Scott Wimsett in an exclusive interview revealing the creative process from the moment he received the phone call informing him of the commission to the day the gown was unveiled.

This is the fourth in a hellomagazine.com series of interviews with style experts offering in-depth analysis of everything from etiquette to a dress fit for Westminster Abbey.
