What’s On: Crown to Couture
The Evening Standard has called this all new, absolutely stunning exhibition "surely the starriest fashion exhibition London has ever seen". Crown to Couture at Kensington Palace is an unmissable experience.
Spotlighting over 200 pieces from ball gowns to coattails, statement jewellery pieces, iconic handbags and everything in between, this brand-new captivating fashion exhibition draws parallels between the glitz of today’s red carpet and the glamour of Georgian Royal Court in the 18th century.
See up close Beyonce´'s Peter Dundas look for the 2017 GRAMMY Awards, the custom Moschino chandelier-inspired outfit designed for Katy Perry and worn at the 2019 Met Gala, among many other contemporary iconic red carpet highlights. Contrasted with these modern-day looks, don’t miss the stunning yellow mantua on loan from National Museums Scotland, the widest surviving court gown in Britain at nearly three metres.
