Diana's Dresses - exhibition at Kensington Palace

A friend has asked if I'd like to go to see Diana - Her Fashion Story  being shown at Kensington Palace until 2018. I'm not a great fan of the celebrity aspects but I'm quite interested in the dresses themselves.

Has anyone here been and what did they think of it?
Aka Jacky F in a former life...

At the time when many of her dresses were sold The Daily Mail did a supplement about them.  I`ve still got it now and they really were stunning.  I`d definitely go to the exhibition if I lived nearer to London.


(Perhaps I should add that I am not a regular Daily Mail reader!!)

As a Republican, non Daily Mail reader and someone who thought Diana's clothes were frumpy, and frilly ( yuk! ) I would still go to see the exhibition were I in London... always look at clothes  :D
Triumph of hope over experience :D
