Francisco Costa’s desire to dress up Kate for Calvin Klein will have to wait

London: Francisco Costa, design head of Calvin Klein has revealed that he would love to dress The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton.

However, the newlywed Duchess prefers British labels, especially when she is on an official duty in Britain, but has not disregarded international fashion houses too.

Soon after their royal wedding, Catherine’s fashion stock was on the rise, with everything she wears selling out in seconds.

It is no surprise that the world’s top fashion labels are clamouring to dress the Duchess, and the latest being the design head for Calvin Klein.

In a recent interview, Costa said that he would like to work with Kate, as she has all the potential to become a ‘style icon’, and looked like an ‘All-American girl’ despite her British breeding.

“She’s very Calvin, when you think about it,” the Daily Mail quoted Costa as telling the Telegraph.

“She’s athletic looking, with great teeth and amazing hair. In many ways she looks like an all American Girl.”

“So, yes, I’m putting it out there: I’d love to dress her,” he added.

If Catherine were to endorse Calvin Klein, it could amount to huge financial gain for the company, and given how carefully she crafts her wardrobe, it is not entirely unlikely that she could one day choose to wear the brand, should the occasion demand.
