Thanks!
He was asked who decided that the colour would be blue. Then he told us that it was clear that they already had the colours red and white in the jacket from WA so then they there was blue (the colours of our flag). He told that us that it had to be fitting in with the whole background and that the both of them decided on the model, it was a process. The lace had to look like 'Delfts blauw' very delicate, it was made in an atelier in Paris.

He was overwhelmed with all the reactions and of course very proud when Maxima asked him to make the two dresses. It was a little boys dream comming true and that he would be part of history as of now.

I don't know, but I was surprised at a number of choices. Exceptions to the rules were the rule.

Thank you so much for ther information Maxima! I love the idea of the Delfts Blauw style lace - I was wondering about the lace design and now it makes the dress seem even more special!

Sorry, I can not find details of the jewels of Sheikha Mozah in last dinner (after the River pageant). I would love to see her belt, bracelet and earrings.
