Editor’s note: Last week we did a special spotlight on James Galanos to mark his passing. I liked the idea of having this “themed” week in addition to our regular content that I thought I would try it again with Princess Diana. While the late Princess is never far from our hearts, she is especially in our thoughts lately with the advent of the soon to be launched exhibit "Diana: Her Fashion Story" at Kensington Palace. Again we have gathered some of the best of the stories around the web this week in celebration of this coming exhibit and will share them with you all this week. Enjoy! xx Cherie
Kensington Palace has released details of an upcoming exhibition that will focus on the style of Princess Diana. Diana: My Fashion Story will open in February, marking 20 years since the princess' tragic death.
"The exhibition will bring together an extraordinary collection of garments, ranging from the glamorous evening gowns worn on engagements in the Eighties, to the chic Catherine Walker suits that made up Diana's working wardrobe in the Nineties," the palace said.
"The princess' relationship with her favorite designers will also be explored through a display of some of their original fashion sketches, created for her during the design process," the palace added.
The exhibition is being held both inside and in the gardens of Kensington Palace, where Diana lived for 15 years. We are expected to see some of the most famous garments worn by the princess, including the velvet Victor Edelstein gown she wore to dance with John Travolta at the White House (above) and the pink Emanuel blouse she wore for her engagement portrait.
Diana: My Fashion Story opens February 24, 2017.
