Designer
    (July 5, 1953- )
    Born in London, United Kingdom
    Birth name is Elizabeth Florence Weiner
    Married to fashion designer David Emanuel (1976-90)
    Designs primarily wedding dresses

    She described her fashion label as 'scavenged luxury.'
    In her later years she adopted a Siouxsie Sioux hairstyle.
    A copy of her Royal wedding dress was sold by Madame Tussaud's at auction for 100,000 pounds, twice the original estimate.
    It was claimed that the copy was personally designed for and tried on by Diana in case of 'any hiccup or disaster' - which both she and her husband categorically denied.
    She went to court to reclaim the rights to her eponymous fashion label after falling out with her corporate partners and lost in a landmark decision (1999).
    She and David were the first married couple to be jointly accepted by the Royal College of Art.
    She had been a personal favorite designer of Diana's for years prior to being commissioned for the wedding dress.
    She found success designing uniforms for airline carrier staff, including for Virgin Atlantic and Britannia Airways.
    She was commissioned by Disney to design the signature gown for Snow White for the film's 60th anniversary gala.
    She has designed dresses for Bianca Jagger,Elizabeth Hurley, Faye Dunaway, and Elizabeth Taylor.
    She was bilked out of some 20,000 pounds after investing with 'Lord' Edward Davenport to finance her new 'Art of Being' line, who then withdrew his offer. Davenport was jailed for million-dollar advanced fee fraud in 2011.
