Royal women and power dressing

18 May 2015, 18.45-20.30
Kensington Palace
£18 / £16 HRP members

Includes drinks reception, exclusive after-hours entry to ‘Fashion Rules’ exhibition, and a copy of our new photography book about modern royal dress.

From the starched ruffs and iron corsets of Elizabeth I to the intricate lace bridal gown of the Duchess of Cambridge in 2011, royal fashion has always been more than just an expression of personal taste.

Join Historic Royal Palaces' Curators Eleri Lynn and Deirdre Murphy to discover more about the history of royal power dressing and how modern royal women continue using fashion as a diplomatic tool to symbolise status, power and national identity.

Eleri Lynn, Collections Curator at Historic Royal Palaces with special responsibility for the dress collection
