All eyes and ears are out for any details on Pippa Middleton's upcoming wedding, which is said to be scheduled for May 2017. The sighting of designer Giles Deacon with large garment bag in hand at her London home is currently sparking up interest on what the royal-in-law might be walking down the aisle in.

The garment bag that Deacon brought to Pippa on Nov. 11 was concealed at all times outside of the socialite’s residence. However, the presence of her mother, Carole Middleton, have led many to believe that the visit was wedding-related. It would seem like the sought-out job, which the public through would be graced to Jenny Packham or Alexander McQueen, was entrusted to the 47-year-old designer.

Deacon, who has made a name for himself by designing statement-making gowns, has dressed Hollywood’s royalty. His client list includes Gwen Stefani, Cate Blanchett and Scarlett Johansson. But his fashion has also been well received by the British monarchs, as his designs have also been sported by the likes of Princess Beatrice, the daughter of Prince Andrew and the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth.

And while his works of art have been on the more playful side, Deacon has worked on wedding gowns before. He was the designer of Abbey Clancy's wedding dress in 2011, when she married Peter Crouch.

As to how the actual dress will look, however, it is likely that Deacon is looking into classic art and the fashion it portrayed. His Instagram feed has been full of beautiful paintings from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which he has been captioning as “research.”
