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?

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
