Princess Diana's Dresses

Twenty of Princess Diana's dresses are on display at the von Liebig Center for the Arts in Naples, FL.  I had the opportunity to work with the conservator to get the dresses ready to exhibit.  My job was to cover 4 of the dress forms in white dupioni silk.    

The first dress form (and the easiest!)

Here's the dress on the form

                                                                           More dresses!

Still hard at work!

I love the red and black number!

Form 2
                                                                             Form 3
Form 4 - not quite finished!

The exhibit is open daily until June 27, 2010.  Go see it for yourself - you won't be disappointed.

Wow, what an opportunity and priviledge you had to work with Princess Di's dresses! Even if you just covered the forms, you were still in the room with the dresses! I have been a fan of Pr. Di's and so saddened by her ending.
