Princess Charlotte- the latest fashion icon? One Spanish dressmaker thinks so. Margarita Pato is swamped with orders from around the world for her design After the Duchess of Cambridge photographed her daughter wearing the M&H dress. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) OWNER OF M&H CHILDREN'S CLOTHING STORE, MARGARITA PATO SAYING: "It was madness .. madness ... from then on, the last few days have been like a dream. I haven't stopped giving interviews, I get calls from all over. I'm so happy and very proud - it's not really about the profit. This is the big prize." After the photographs were released fashion blogs and celebrity magazines were left stumped Unable to find the origin of the six-month-old princess's dress. It was Margarita herself who solved the mystery. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) OWNER OF M&H CHILDREN'S CLOTHING STORE, MARGARITA PATO SAYING: "I bought the magazine and I had an attack of nerves, 'It's my dress!' One thousand percent. I had a piece of the fabric at home and then I compared it, I called Hola.com and I said 'I just bought your magazine, and I am the designer of the dress.' They were extremely happy." Some reports suggest the Duchess of Cambridge's Spanish nanny may have bought the 30 euro dress. Either way Margarita won't be able to replicate it too many times. She only has 10 meters of the fabric left. Enough to make just 20 more!
