From when she was first propelled into the public eye as a shy, young kindergarten teacher sporting the Sloane Rangers' ubiquitous pie–crust collar, to the elegant, sophisticated young woman confidently gracing the world stage in the nineties, Diana, Princess of Wales' fashion choices were keenly dissected and debated across the world.
This year marks 20 years since her untimely death, and in tribute to her life a major new exhibition opens at Kensington Palace this spring. Titled 'Diana: Her Fashion Story', the exhibition charts the development of the Princess's fashion style from those first demure, romantic outfits, to the chic 'working' suits worn throughout her public life, to the glamorous evening dresses seen on numerous star–studded occasions, including the inky blue velvet gown worn at the White House in 1985 for that famous dance with John Travolta! The Princess's relationship with her favourite designers will also be highlighted in a display of original sketches created for her during the design process.
Follow the evolution of a Princess at first strongly directed by royal advisors, who slowly but surely nurtured her own distinctive style and navigated a unique position in the public eye, learning to use her image to engage and inspire people, and to champion the causes she cared about.
To complement the fashion exhibition in this anniversary year, the sunken garden at Kensington Palace will be re–named The White Garden in memory of the Princess and planted with white roses, scented narcissi and a carpet of forget–me–nots for visitors to enjoy as part of the palace admission.
