Diana: A Celebration

Diana, Princess of Wales, will always be remembered for her tireless charity work, her style, her compassion and human warmth. In Atlanta until June 6th, Diana: A Celebration exhibition commemorates her life, all of her life’s work, and the legacy that she left behind.

Diana became known to the world once her engagement to HRH Prince Charles went public on February 24th, 1981. She was the first Englishwoman in over 300 years to marry an heir to the throne, and became the Princess of Wales on July 29th 1981.

The exhibition will take you through a journey starting at Diana’s childhood, to her engagement and Royal Wedding, to her work, her style, and fashion. Over 150 items will be on display, including a tiara gallery along with other jewelry she wore from all over the globe. Another major highlight of the exhibition is the 28 outfits from the early 80’s to her last public engagement on display. The clothes tell a story of how her sense of fashion matured as she went from a young girl to a confident princess changing people’s lives around the world.

Princess Diana had to choose what she wore very carefully as her fashion sense and style was scrutinized right from the start. Once she became princess, she was a big supporter of the British fashion industry in the 80’s. She chose classic tailoring for the day, and romantic eveningwear for events. In the 90’s, she created her own sense of unique personal style, branching out to more international designers such as Versace, Valentino, and Chanel.

The exhibition is located at the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center (map)
