What price would you put on owning a piece of fashion history? Well. Ten of the most iconic dresses that the late Diane Princess of Wales ever wore are going under the hammer at the Kerry Taylor auction house on March 19.
The gowns by Catherine Walker, Zandra Rhodes, Belleville Sassoon and Bruce Oldfield, to name a few, originate from the early phase of the late princess’ style evolution. In fact, the velvet Victor Edelstein dress she wore to dance with John Travolta, at a 1985 White House State dinner, is part of the sale.
A Mrs Maureen Rorech Dunkel, who toured the world with them to raise money for charity, bought the dresses the first time around. Something we are sure the princess would have approved of. Now, it is someone else’s turn. They’ll have to have deep pockets though, as estimates are between £20,000 and £200,000. Still, the catalogue itself is a mere fiver. Much more our price range!
