A nipped-in waist in the 50s. Diaphanous fabrics and short hemlines in the 60s and 70s. Sparkles and shoulder pads in the 80s. These are the fashion rules we all dressed by – even members of the Royal Family.
Featuring rare and exquisite dresses from HM Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Margaret and Diana, Princess of Wales, this exhibition will provide a feast for the eyes and a nostalgic glance back at recent decades.
Elegant dress displays will explore how these royal figures were representative of the spirit of each decade, reflecting and inspiring everyday fashions. Photography and film footage will take us back to the optimistic 1950s, rebellious 1960s and 70s, through to the extravagant 80s.
