Kate Middleton's Favorite Designer, Jenny Packham, Is Launching an Affordable Line
Duchess Kate has proven many times before that Jenny Packham's stylish dresses are fit for a princess, and until now, only those with royally huge wardrobe budgets could afford her designs.
The British designer, whose pieces from her namesake collection retail for a few thousand dollars each, is taking a cue from big name brands like Marc Jacobs and Alexander McQueen and is releasing a contemporary, budget-friendly line.
The Daily Mail confirms that Packham's new lower-priced line called No.1 Jenny Packham will include both women's and children's clothing. The pieces will cost between 85 GBP to 160 GBP ($134 - $253) and will be available at U.K. department store Debenhams beginning in April.
No.1 Jenny Packham will also include a range of accessories including bags, jewelry, shoes and fascinators that will retail for 18 GBP to 100 GBP ($28 - $158).
Packham's celeb fan following includes not only Duchess Kate (who wore her rose Swarovski crystal-embellished gown in L.A. and her silver satin gown in November), but also Angelina Jolie (who rocked her sexy black number to the 2012 SAG Awards and Vanessa Hudgens (who donned her black halter gown with gold beading at the 2012 People's Choice Awards).
