Designer re-releases Kate Middleton's engagement dress

The designer of the dress Kate Middleton wore in her engagement photo to Prince William is re-released to stores and is flying off the shelves

NEW YORK - The dress Kate Middleton wore in her official engagement photo with Prince William is now available to the public.

Designed by Reiss, the "Nannette" dress was purchased last year by Middleton at the company's London store. Reiss decided to re-release the dress this week to brisk sales.

Lyndon Mackenzie, general manager of the company's Soho store in New York City, said the dress is flying off the racks and will be sold out by week's end.

While Middleton's engagement photo dress is creating a lot of buzz, Mackenzie hopes the future princess chooses Reiss for the big day.

He said he believes that dress is "going to be something very timeless and classic. Very sophisticated."

The couple will marry on April 29 at Westminster Abbey.
