EMANUEL EMPTIES HER ARCHIVE: London designer Elizabeth Emanuel will auction key pieces from her archive in a bid to raise money for her small couture business. Emanuel, best known for designing Princess Diana’s wedding gown with her then-husband and business partner David Emanuel, said the pieces include the pale pink silk chiffon blouse the young Lady Di wore for her engagement picture in British Vogue, as well as a miniature of the famous gown. The auction, which runs from today to Nov. 13 on, also will feature one-off dresses worn by celebrities such as Elizabeth Hurley, Jane Seymour, Helena Bonham Carter and Brigitte Nielsen. “It’s going to be such a wrench to part with these pieces because they are unique,” said Emanuel, who designs under the label Art of Being Couture. Emanuel, who also designs a line of wedding dresses for British Home Stores, said she is hunting for investors to help grow her business.
