An exhibition celebrating the fairytale fashion of Bellville Sassoon, the designers famed for dressing the Princess of Wales.

There is nothing subtle about the designs of Bellville Sassoon, the high-society fashion label that is having a late renaissance thanks to some early eighties retro-styling.

Belinda Bellville and David Sassoon had been the go-to fashion house for posh girls since the 1960s but really hit their stride in the 1980s thanks to a young Princess Diana. Their frilly, off-the-shoulder numbers became a hit and have been popular at weddings and bar mitzvahs ever since.

This exhibition celebrates their idiosyncratic style in all its sumptuous glory.
