A Diana Fashion Show

Fans of Princess Diana can admire some of her famous dresses at her former home this fall, for a $15 fee. Britain’s Historic Royal Palaces announced Wednesday that 14 gowns, by designers such as Catherine Walker and Bruce Oldfield, will be included in Kensington Palace’s Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection until March 31, 2000. All of the dresses belong to Maureen Rorech-Dunkel, an American collector, who bought them at Christie’s auction in June 1997. After Diana’s death two months later in a Paris car crash, Rorech-Dunkel set up a charity to raise funds for causes the princess supported.
