Princess Diana: Her Fashion Story

After 20 years of her death Princess Diana receives an exhibit dedicated to her style through the years. Kensington Palace, her former home, will be the hub to view Diana’s most notable and iconic garments from her shy, teenage years to becoming an “international star”. Eleri Lynn, creator of the exhibit, collaborated with Diana’s favorite designers and photographers to bring her vision to fruition. Lynn goes on to say “Fashion is a great medium to talk about the princess because it is a language which she herself mastered in order to communicate with others”. Diana’s style will most likely draw the attention of a younger crowd, there’s no question of her being a style influencer.
