The royals certainly have an entourage of people that are behind all their looks and styles, but Princess Diana’s designers must have been the best of the best considering how trendy all of her looks have been. Her iconic outfits have been circulating throughout the internet for years, but now you will get a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with perhaps the most talked about gown that she wore—her wedding dress.
Royal Style In The Making
It’s been 25 years since the public last got a chance to take a glance at her beautiful white gown, but the Kensington Palacewill be showcasing it again this summer for their ‘Royal Style In The Making’ exhibition. The purpose of this exhibition is to ‘explore the intimate relationship between fashion designer and royal client,’ and it will be showcasing numerous state of the art pieces created in the 20th century. Exhibition curator of Historic Royal Palaces, Matthew Storey said:
Our summer exhibition at Kensington Palace will shine a spotlight on some of the greatest talents of British design, whose work has been instrumental in shaping the visual identity of the royal family across the twentieth century.
We’ll be exploring how the partnership between each designer and client worked, and revealing the process behind the creation of a number of the most important couture commissions in royal history.
To add to the fabulous collection,Prince William and Prince Harry have temporarily donated their mother’s bridal gown for the public to see and adore.
Princess Diana’s wedding dress, designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel, is a work of art that is doused in intricate details. Her dress was decorated with 10,000 pearl sequins, and beautiful lace work. Not to mention, all the bows and ruffles that we all know the Princess loved. The dress will also be accompanied by Diana's 25ft wedding train, the longest in royal history.
The exhibition will begin on 3 June, and is open to the public until 2 January, 2022.
