‘Diana: Her Fashion Story’ Exhibition To Be Staged At Kensington Palace in 2017

  November 15, 2016 at 6:19 am by

A new exhibition highlighting the fashion of the late Diana, Princess of Wales will be staged at the Piggott Gallery in Kensington Palace next year. 2017 marks the twentieth anniversary of the Princess’s death.

It has been designed to “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”.

Among the outfits that will go on display are the midnight blue velvet Victor Edelstein evening gown worn by Princess Diana for a dinner at the White House in 1985, and a blue tartan suit created by Emanuel that was worn during a visit to Italy in 1985.

The exhibition will open to the public on February 24, while a ‘White Garden’ will be created by the Kensington Palace gardeners to coincide with the spring and summer seasons, made up of “flowers and foliage inspired by memories of the Princess’s life, image and style”.

    Lovely story but could you please try to get the titles correct, it is Lady Diana, Princess of Wales. She was never a Princess, so it is either Lady Diana or the Princess of Wales. Thank you.

    Laura: These are her titles through the years.

    1 July 1961 – 9 June 1975: The Honourable Diana Frances Spencer (as an Earl’s granddaughter).
    9 June 1975 – 29 July 1981: Lady Diana Frances Spencer (as an Earl’s daughter).

    During her marriage to Prince Charles:
    29 July 1981 – 28 August 1996: HRH The Princess of Wales
    in Scotland: 29 July 1981 – 28 August 1996: HRH The Duchess of Rothesay
    in Chester: 29 July 1981 – 28 August 1996: HRH The Countess of Chester

    After her divorce:
    28 August 1996 – 31 August 1997: Diana, Princess of Wales

  4. It does an interesting Fashion Collection of remarkable evening and daily dresses of Princess Diana. In 2001 I saw the most part of it in Kensington Palace in London. It included historical photopictures as well.
