DIANA’S DRESSES: A collection of 10 dresses worn by Princess Diana will go on display at the Bath Fashion Museum in England from July 17 to Jan. 9. The show includes dresses worn during royal tours of Canada and New Zealand in the early Eighties, evening dresses by British couturier Catherine Walker and little black cocktail dresses from the mid-Nineties by designers such as Gianni Versace. One of the dresses on display was designed for Diana by historic costumier John Bright of Cosprop. The pale pink silk dress was inspired by an 1880s design with intricate lace inserts. Diana wore the delicate garment for a formal “Klondike” costume party in Ford Edmonton, Alberta, during the royal visit to Canada in 1983. The dresses, on loan from private collectors, trace Diana’s evolution from a shy young royal to a woman in the media spotlight.
