PREVIEW: Royal Style in the Making, Kensington Palace

The palace is set to welcome back visitors with an exhibition exploring the relationship between a designer and their Royal client.

On display from the 3rd June, Royal Style in the Making will explore the intimate relationship between fashion designer and royal client, uncovering the process behind the creation behind some of the most important couture commissions throughout royal history.

One highlight of the exhibition will be the wedding dress of Diana, Princess of Wales, on display at the palace for the first time in twenty five years, as well as a rare, surviving toile for the 1937 coronation gown of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother; consort of King George VI.

The display is also set to include never-before-seen items from the archives of some of the most celebrated royal couturiers of the 20th century, that will be shown alongside examples of the glittering gowns and stylish tailoring created for three generations of royal women.

This will include original sketches, fabric swatches and unseen photographs from the Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection – all highlighting the the unique qualities that each couturier brought to the royal wardrobe.

Royal Style in the Making will be on display at Kensington Palace from the 3rd June until the 2nd January 2022.
