New ex­hi­bi­tion cel­e­brates the style of Princess Diana

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

Kens­ing­ton Palace says a new ex­hi­bi­tion trac­ing the evo­lu­tion of the late Princess Diana’s style is set to open in Fe­bru­ary.

The palace said Tues­day that the ex­hi­bi­tion, “Diana: Her Fash­ion Story,” will fol­low from the ruf­fled blouses in her first ap­pear­ances to her later life. It’s the first palace ex­hi­bi­tion in a decade to fo­cus solely on the princess.

In­cluded are cel­e­brated out­fits, in­clud­ing evening gowns worn on en­gage­ments in the 1980s and Cather­ine Walker suits of her “work­ing wardrobe” in the 1990s. It will also in­clude Vic­tor Edel­stein’s ink blue vel­vet gown, which Diana wore as she danced with John Tra­volta at the White House in 1985. Cu­ra­tor Eleri Lynn says ev­ery fash­ion choice Diana made was scru­ti­nized and the ex­hi­bi­tion shows how she quickly learned the rules.
