As a designer, you know you've made it (and are about to get very, very busy) when Kate Middleton is spotted in one of your dresses.
That happened for Issa London in November 2010 when the duchess-to-be arrived for her royal engagement announcement in a blue silk wrap dress that perfectly matched her iconic ring.
Now, as Kate focuses on the joys of motherhood, Issa London is gearing up for the launch of its limited-edition capsule collection for Banana Republic, including a replica of the famous blue dress for $130.
The collection includes almost 40 pieces in total, with figure flattering dresses, exotic prints, statement jewelry and leather accessories for $39.50-$150.
You'll find it all at select Banana Republic stores Aug. 8, but here's a quick preview.
