Diana: Her Fashion Story
Diana: Her fashion Story
The definitive dress exhibition is held at Kensington Palace
Trace the evolution of the Princess’s style, from the demure, romantic outfits of her first public appearances, to the glamour, elegance and confidence of her later life.
Don’t miss an extraordinary collection of garments, including the pale pink Emanuel blouse worn for Diana’s engagement portrait by Lord Snowdon in 1981 and Victor Edelstein’s iconic ink blue velvet gown, famously worn at the White House when the Princess danced with John Travolta.
New discoveries and original designs
The Princess’s relationship with her favourite designers is explored through a display of original fashion sketches created for her during the design process.
In addition, a recently discovered blue tartan Emanuel suit will go on display to the public for the first time. This suit was worn by Diana on an official visit to Venice in the 1980s.
Explore the White Garden
While in residence at Kensington Palace, the Princess admired the changing floral displays in the historic Sunken Garden and would often stop to talk to the gardeners who cared for it.
Complementing the dress exhibition, the garden has been planted with flowers and foliage, inspired by memories of the Princess’s life, image and style.
