Do you remember Charlotte Todd?!

Do you remember Charlotte Todd? no? I'll give you a little hint,

Does this dress ring a bell? oh you remember, yes this is the see-through dress that made Prince William fall for Kate Middleton designed by Charlotte Todd.

Todd has chosen the eve of Kate Middleton and Prince William's nuptials to launch her fashion design career with a small 12-piece collection featuring - you guessed it - an updated version of the knitted tube dress Middleton wore in a charity fashion show at St Andrews University in 2002.

Famously, Prince William was in the audience and after Kate caught his eye in her revealing outfit, the pair became a couple. The original dress, made of hand-knitted silk, cost Todd, now 32, £30 to make and sold recently at auction for £78,000 despite Todd claiming in an interview last November that she would never sell the precious garment.

"The only person I'd probably give it to is her [Middleton] - maybe in exchange for a wedding invitation. Of course I would love to design her wedding dress too."

When neither of those options came to fruition, it was off to Kerry Taylor auction house with the dress, which finally went to a mystery bidder, rumoured to be from Jersey.

Well wish her good luck for her colletion wich is rumored to be a "this summer's must have"- colletion

"The keywords for the collection are boho glam with a hint of royal sophistication, which is what this summer will be remembered for," the press release explains, and: "combines swathes of unique knitted fabrics in a sensual and Swedish summer Boho style with a vibrant colour palate [sic] reminiscent of the vibrant 70's."

The modernised Middleton dress

 made from "sheer Italian yarns" is the first piece of the collection to be released, and despite appearances, is by all accounts a bit of an-all rounder promising to "keep you cool during the summer days and warm through the evenings. It can serve as day or beach wear or be a statement piece for a hot summer's evening."

well who know maybe kate might buy it At £49.95 for her honeymoon...
