Diana: Her Fashion Story
Exhibition Kensington Palace, London, UK.
Tracing the evolution of the Princess’s style, from the demure, romantic ou its of her first public appearances to the glamorous, elegant and confident attire of her later life. Everything Diana wore was closely scrutinised, and the exhibition explores how she navigated her position in the public eye: learning to use her image to engage and inspire people and to champion the causes she cared about.
Brought together here is an extraordinary collection of garments, ranging from the evening gowns worn on royal engagements in the 1980s to the chic Catherine Walker suits that made up her ‘working wardrobe’ in the 1990s. The Princess’s relationship with her favourite designers is also investigated, with a display of some of the original fashion sketches created for her during the design process.
