diana: her fashion story.

“There are loads of movie stars and celebrities but there will be only one Diana.”
– Elizabeth Emanuel

As mentioned in my last post, I spent the last weekend of March visiting a friend in London. Our one museum-y outing was a visit to Kensington Palace to see the current exhibit of Princess Diana’s most famous couture. The curators did a great job of detailing Diana’s style evolution and her relationship with the designers whose work she championed. The exhibit was really crowded, even during a week day, but I was able to get a few photos while I was there. Enjoy!

#techstyle at the MFA.

On Sunday I visited the Museum of Fine Arts for the opening of it’s newest contemporary exhibit, #techstyle. The exhibit explores technology’s influence on fashion design and was really remarkable to see. Several works were intended as performance art while others addressed the issue of waste and sustainability by utilizing repurposed materials. I was especially drawn to a number of pieces that had been created using 3-D printers.

The show runs through July 10 and I would highly recommend seeing it. Below are some photos I took during my visit. Enjoy!
