PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Now that the world has seen the dress Kate Middleton, now the Duchess of Cambridge, wore in her wedding, will it set a new trend for future brides?

Greg Cherico hopes so. He’s the owner of Anne Gregory, a bridal salon, and has been dressing brides for more than 30 years. He knows a good look when he sees it.

“I hope this is an indication that strapless is going to go away for a while,” he said.

Meantime, Janet Groom, the costumer for the Pittsburgh ballet, has been working on a replica of the dress worn by Her Royal Highness, since early Friday morning.

A Kate look-a-like, Dessie Xanakis, and others who resemble the royal wedding party, are taking part in a local fundraiser for the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden.

Dessie isn’t engaged yet, but she says she would definitely consider wearing this dress on her big day.

Groom finished the dress in less than eight hours. She had hoped for a leak so that she could get a head start. That didn’t happen, so she and her team had to rely on pictures.
