The New Zealand-born fashion designer posted a statement to her social media on Sunday evening (May 27).
“I am extremely saddened by commentary that has appeared in the press and online over the past few days. Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Sussex looked absolutely beautiful on her wedding day and I have the utmost admiration and respect for her,” she wrote.
“I do not think that her wedding dress was a copy of any of our designs. I have the greatest respect for Clare Waight Keller and the House of Givenchy, a huge source of inspiration to me.”
“I wish Their Royal Highnesses, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex a wonderful, happy and love filled life together, Emilia,” she concluded.
