Diana: Glimpses of a Modern Princess
DIANA: Glimpses of a Modern Princess, an exhibition showcasing some of the late princess’s most memorable gowns, will be on display at Kensington Palace from March 26 to August 31, 2012.
The dresses, which will be displayed alongside fashion illustrations and photographs, will reflect some important and memorable moments in Diana’s public life – from the famous black strapless evening gown by Emanuel which has never been on public display before to a stunning sleek black cocktail dress by Gianni Versace which she wore several years later.
An evening dress which created a splash in the newspapers, a shocking pink Catherine Walker gown and a popular demure cocktail dress by Bellville Sassoon Lorcan Mullany, photographs and fashion illustrations will trace Diana’s evolution from young woman to Princess.
The exhibition is part of Historic Royal Palaces’ £12 million major re-presentation project to transform the visitor experience of Kensington Palace in time for Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics.
