Ter­ri­tory rig

SPARKLE LIKE MISS MARKLE Dar­win de­sign­ers have a few ideas to help doll up the world’s most fa­mous cou­ple on their im­pend­ing wed­ding day


AFAIRYTALE fash­ion story is un­fold­ing as the royal red­head, Prince Harry and his dar­ling Meghan Markle, put re­gal ring on it — to para­phrase Bey­once. Through fash­ion fairy dust, so­cial me­dia erupted with beau­ti­ful pho­tos of the happy cou­ple ear­lier this week, who both seem to share a cheeky per­son­al­ity and a zest for life.

A per­son­al­ity per­fect for the North­ern Ter­ri­tory, some may say.

It would be quite fit­ting for Harry to wear a croc belt on their wed­ding day, as an ode to the croc he caught when vis­it­ing here in 2015.

With­out doubt, Meghan would glow in pearls. And the dress?

Two Dar­win de­sign­ers have both ear­marked an el­e­gant edge for Miss Markle.

Matilda Ale­gria’s de­signs un­der her self-ti­tled la­bel are known for bridal and event cou­ture wear.

Her gowns are hot picks for the Ter­ri­tory event sea­son, in­clud­ing red car­pets and race days.

She told Fron­tier this week that the royal wed­ding is very ex­cit­ing.

“Given Meghan’s his­tory as an ac­tor and be­ing in the lime­light be­fore dat­ing Prince Harry, I am hop­ing she may be the bride to take some risks with her choice of dress,” she said.

“I cer­tainly think she will be keep­ing very clas­sic, con­ser­va­tive and el­e­gant, but hope­fully with an edge.

“Sheer ap­plique panel work is very on trend so this could be a way she could set her­self apart from many royal brides be­fore her.”

Sa­rina Cowcher, who owns The Big Day bridal store in Dar­win and a fash­ion la­bel un­der her own name, hopes Meghan will amp up palace style, with a mod­ern take on typ­i­cally con­ser­va­tive royal wed­ding gowns.

She’s got Meghan’s ac­ces­sories or­gan­ised, iden­ti­fy­ing the Tower of Lon­don for tiara, neck­lace and ear­rings.

“Meghan is a suc­cess­ful, stun­ning and con­tem­po­rary woman, who even though she will never hold princess as a ti­tle should def­i­nitely be a princess for the day,” Ms Cowcher said.

“Us­ing a mod­ern take of the new hues of blue and grey will put that con­tem­po­rary twist on it, and with­out a doubt plenty of sparkling em­bel­lish­ment just like Ital­ian de­signer Ni­cole Sposas style.”
