Diana designs take centre stage in new show: “A Life in Fashion – Bellville Sassoon Lorcan Mullany”
Outfits worn by Diana, Princess of Wales, will be the centrepiece of a new exhibition at Bath & North East Somerset Council’s Fashion Museum; celebrating over 50 years of unique British fashion house Bellville Sassoon.
In 2011 British designer David Sassoon donated his archive of hundreds of fashion drawings from the 1950s to the 2000s to the Fashion Museum in Bath. This generous gift charts the history of the firm Bellville Sassoon as one of London’s top couturiers, and represents an unparalleled record of a life in fashion.
Twenty five choice evening dresses have been selected by Mr Sassoon, each one lovingly kept across the years by Bellville Sasson’s loyal clientele, and now borrowed back especially for the display which runs from 25 January 2014 to 1 January 2015
