In honour of the legacy of Princess Diana, the Kensington Palace has closed the fashion exhibition - Diana: Her Fashion Story. But this comes so that the palace can make way for a new Queen Victoria exhibition to mark the 200th birth anniversary of the Queen. But this does not mean that the exhibition has shut down completely. Her style legacy still lives on at her former home and with a bonus! A small new display featuring an evening gown the princess wore will also be exhibited at the venue. 

The evening gown that the Princess wore to a state dinner in Bangkok in 1988 was by Catherine Walker and will be the centre piece for the display. According to reports, the dress is a subtle tribute to the national dress of Thailand, since it had the colours pink and purple which is the national flower of the land. Diana also wore the same flower in her hair to match with her dress. 

In addition to that, for the first time ever, eight sketches by designer David Sassoon, the princess' favourite designer will also be part of the showcase. Each illustration pays tribute to a different outfit that the Princess had worn. The bright yellow dress she wore for her Australia tour back in 1983 and a red velvet dress that she wore two months before giving birth to Prince William also will be displayed at the exhibition. The sketches will also be changed every six months so there is no stagnation.
