If you are in London at this exciting time in July 2013, don’t miss Fashion Rules, The Summer exhibit at Kensington Palace, open now, starting July 4th 2013. This look back in time at Royal Fashion of 3 Royal Ladies is a Must See event.
The exhibit shows gowns worn by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, from the late 50s to the 60s. Gowns she has worn for state occasions and foreign visits that document her fashion style during those times.
Further, by seeing gowns and portraits from the young Princess Margaret, the viewer is able to understand the fashion style of HRH Princess Margaret, from the time of young royal princess to her style evolution in the 70s.
Then, we get a glimpse of the glamourous 80s style of Diana, Princess of Wales, with Looks that defined her time in the fashion spot light from the early 80s to the mid 90s.
I hope these introductions will send you on your way to discover for yourself.
If you are at KP, don’t forget to tour the other public rooms at KP with their whimsical fanciful displays. Well, for me that’s for another post.
