On November 15, Netflix releases season 4 of The Crown, a series about the history of the British royal family. This season, Princess Diana, played by Emma Corrin, will finally appear in history. While recreating her image, the show's dressers could not ignore her famous wedding dress, in which she married Prince Charles. An exact copy was created for filming. How did they do it? It took 600 hours of handmade work, 100 meters of lace from the same manufacturer that Diana contacted, and consultation from the original designer.

To work on a copy of the legendary outfit, David Emanuel was hired - the designer who, together with his ex-wife, invented and sewed the very dress for Lady Diana. For the designer in 1981, this was a turning point in his career. “Seeing a repetition of this dress is like seeing a ghost. So many memories,”says Emanuel. He helped the crew to recreate the famous image by sharing the secrets of its creation. “I gave them enough tips: put mesh in the sleeves, add a lot of glitter to the veil, choose the right shade of white for the fabric,” the designer said. By the way, it was the choice of the shade that was one of the most difficult tasks: vintage photos distort the color rendition, so it is difficult to assess the real color of objects from photographs.

The performer of the role of Princess Diana Emma Corrin admitted that the whole film crew held their breath when she first appeared in the remake of the famous outfit. "This dress most personifies her - more than anything I wear in the frame," she admitted. Three craftsmen worked - the whole process took them 600 hours of work (10 weeks, 12 hours a day!) In total, Princess Diana's wardrobe for the series is about 40 or 50 looks - other tailors have already worked on them.
