Elizabeth Emanuel to Exhibit at Blenheim Palace
Blenheim Palace is pleased to announce that Elizabeth Emanuel will be contributing to the exciting new, ‘Passion for Fashion – 300 years of Style,’ exhibition opening on 12th February, 2017.
The exhibition is a celebration of three centuries of Blenheim related fashion and style. Emanuel will be allowing items from her personal archive to be on display for the very first time and the dress-making process for Princess Diana’s wedding dress will be documented from initial sketches and designs, right up to the finished article. The late Princess of Wales was one of four Lady Diana Spencers related to the Duke of Marlborough and his family.
Elizabeth Emanuel says: “I am thrilled to be able to contribute to this new exhibition at Blenheim Palace. I am delighted to be able to lend such precious items which were an integral and important part of the making of the Royal wedding dress. It will be lovely to see them displayed for visitors to see at the Palace.”
She continues: “The exhibition marks the start of an exciting year as I am looking forward to the launch of my new brand later in 2017.”
Emanuel’s artefacts will be surrounded by Blenheim Palace’s own priceless collections and displayed alongside 18th, 19th and 20th century items of clothing, shoes and accessories on loan from the Hereford Museum and the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum.
