The late Princess Diana was known as a style icon, and a new exhibition opens on Friday in London to follow the evolution of her style. ‘Diana: Her Fashion Story’, opens at Kensington Palace, as part of a series of events to mark the 20th anniversary of the princess’s tragic death in a car crash in Paris on 31 August 1997.
The exhibition features 25 of Princess Diana’s dresses in six themed displays, each of which tells a story. A new temporary White Garden has also been created for the occasion at her former home in London, with tulips, roses and forget-me-nots set to bloom around the reflective pool in the summer.
The show charts Diana’s fashion progress and examines how she established herself as a trendsetter and style icon. It begins with her 1979 debutante ballgown, and showcases the dazzling dresses and classic tailored outfits that Diana was known for, and were copied the world over.
Further information on the exhibition of ‘Diana: Her Fashion Story’ is available here.
