For her wedding with Prince Charles on 9 April 2005 at Windsor Guildhall,[1] Camilla Parker Bowles's wedding dress was a cream silk chiffon dress hemmed with vertical rows of Swiss-made appliqued woven disks, and a matching oyster silk basket weave coat.[2] She completed the outfit with pale beige suede shoes with almond-colored toes designed by L.K.Bennett, a Philip Treacy wide-brimmed cream-coloured straw hat overlaid with ivory French lace and feathers, and a purse made from embossed calf leather with a half flap closing and suede lining, from Launer’s “East/West” collection.[3][4] Work on the outfit began on 21 February 2005, and the final fitting was made on 5 April.[4]

For the blessing afterward, she wore a floor-length embroidered pale blue and gold coat over a matching chiffon gown and a dramatic spray of golden feathers in her hair.[4] Both ensembles were by Antonia Robinson and Anna Valentine, London designers who worked under the name Robinson Valentine, now solely called Anna Valentine.[5] They reportedly wanted a “crisp clean look with subtle detailing” for the dress.[4]
