Royal frocks, including Diana wedding dress, on display in London




The voluminous ivory dress princess  diana award to marry prince charles  in 1981 has gone on display at her  former london home  as part of a new exhibition showcasing a  selection of gowns  worn by members of britain's royal  family  royal style in the making looks at the  works of designers  and their royal clients and features  outfits created for queen elizabeth  the queen mother princess margaret and  dinah  as well as sketches fabric swatches and  photographs  from the royal ceremonial dress  collection  perhaps with a greater appreciation of  90s fashion that's happening at the  moment  we're looking back at her style and  enjoying it and you  because diana proved that  royal fashion is not just fashion  it's communication she thought very  closely and very carefully  about her style and how it would be seen  by people who she met  and people who saw her image beamed all  over the world  and i think for that reason her style is  incredibly enduring and incredibly  iconic  because she put so much care and  attention  into it among the most recognizable  frogs  is dinah's tafita and lay's wedding gown  made up of a bodice full skirt puffed  sleeves and 25 foot train  at the center of the exhibition is diana  princess of wales's  wedding dress designed in 1981  by emanuel now we're all familiar with  that iconic shape  so typical of early 80s fashion  big puffed sleeves very romantic and  vintage inspired  but when you come to the exhibition what  you appreciate  are the details the antique lace  the modern lace that was designed to  imitate it which  lines the entire 25 foot long train  all of which is embellished with  thousands of iridescent sequins  so the whole dress sparkles  designed by david and elizabeth emmanuel  the dress is on loan from diana's sons  princess william  and harry  diana princess of wales's wedding dress  has been very generously lent to us by  the duke of cambridge  and the duke of sussex it has been seen  before but this is the first time  in 25 years but it's been shown  at dying the princess of wales's former  home  at kensington palace  among other items on show is a rare  surviving trawl  for a gown worn by queen elizabeth the  queen mother for king george the sixth  coronation in 1937  as well as a blue and gold 18th century  style dress design for princess margaret  by stage designer oliver messel  perhaps one of my favorite exhibits  in the exhibition is a georgian style  dress  created for princess margaret she wore  it  to a costume ball at the mansion house  in 1964  in aid of one of her favorite charities  the saint john ambulance  it was designed by her uncle by marriage  oliver messel the greatest theatrical  designer  of the 20th century  the exhibition which opened last week  and runs until january  is at kensington palace where dinah  lived  until her death in a paris car crash in  1997.
