Trace the evolution of Diana, Princess of Wales' style, from the demure, romantic dresses and other outfits of her first public appearances, to the glamour, elegance and confidence of her later life.
Among the highlights in this sell-out exhibition is Victor Edelstein's iconic ink blue velvet gown, famously worn at the White House when the Princess danced with John Travolta.
A blue tartan Emanuel suit, worn for an official visit to Venice in the 1980s, went on public display at Kensington Palace for the first time in 2017.
The suit, a rare survival of the Princess's daywear, was only recently rediscovered and acquired by Historic Royal Palaces at auction.
In this elegant exhibition at Diana's former London home, her relationship with her favourite designers will be explored through a display of some of their original fashion sketches, created for her during the design process.
To celebrate the success of the Diana: Her Fashion Story exhibition, outfits from some of Diana's most iconic moments will be added to the display for 2018.
The flak vest, denim shirt and Armani chinos selected for her high-profile visit to the landmine fields of Angola in 1997 will form the centerpiece of the exhibition until November 2018.
Other items joining the exhibition are the pink Bellville Sassoon suit worn by the Princess to board the train for her honeymoon and never-before displayed outfits including a sumptuous Victor Edelstein evening gown worn for an official portrait by Terence Donovan.
