Kensington Palace announced this Sunday that a new exhibit featuring Princess Diana’s extensive and fashionable wardrobe will go on display this August 14.
It has been titled as “Diana: Her Fashion Story,” the show was to be held to celebrate Princess Diana’s life, 20 years after her death in August 1997.
According to a press release from the palace, the show will include a range of looks and designs from the more romantic and lovable outfits of her first public appearance to the glamorous and admirable ones.
Some of the pieces from Princess Diana’s wardrobe confirmed for the show include the Emanuel blouse Princess Diana wore in her 1981 engagement portrait. The second one is the Victor Edelstein gown she wore to a White House visit in 1985 and the third one is a famous tartan Emanuel suit Princess Diana wore in Venice, Italy.

EVERY PIECE OF DRESS SHE WORE SHOWED AND REFLECTED HER LIFE’S STORY IN A UNIQUE MANNER
Every fashion choice she made was closely scrutinized. Lynn said in a statement. “Our exhibition explores the story of a young woman who had to and was expected to quickly learn the rules and rituals of the royals and about the diplomatic and distinctive dressing, which in the process put the spotlight on the British fashion industry and designers.”
There’s no denying of Princess Diana’s glamorous evolution over the years. Lynn said it’s Diana’s fashion transformation that in part will draw people to come see the collection of pieces and connect them, in some way, to their own lives. “We see her growing in confidence throughout her life, increasingly taking control of how she was to be represented, and intelligently communicating through her clothes.
