London: Queen of fashion Dame Vivienne Westwood has said that royal bride-to-be Kate Middleton does not have the style credentials to wear her clothes.

Speculation on just who will design Middleton`s wedding dress has been rife during London Fashion Week.

But Vivienne Westwood has categorically denied it would be her.

``I would have loved to have dressed Kate Middleton but I have to wait until she kind of catches up a bit somewhere with style,`` a newspaper quoted her as saying during a Fashion show at the Royal Courts of Justice.

``Sorry. I`m not going to say any more, that`s it.

``When people ask me where she`s going to get the dress from - she`s definitely not going to get it from me, or I would have heard,``Westwood said.

But the designer paid homage to the Royal Family with her Red Label Autumn/Winter 2011/12 collection at London Fashion Week.

Westwood said the theme was based on ``the idea of the Royal Family, but somehow, all seen in this very Alice in Wonderland way``.

She also praised the Prince of Wales for his support of sustainability as she made an impassioned case for the use of wool.
