It has been 25 years since Princess Diana passed away. But still his name is at the top in the list of fashion icons of the world. Diana, the British princess and socialite, was ahead of her time in everything from her choice of fashion style to her looks. That is why his name is at the top of the discussion even after all these years.
Princess Diana became the queen of people’s hearts even though she could not win the hearts of the British royal family. From the famous ‘revenge dress’ to the red carpet – she walked everywhere. Style-conscious Diana didn’t have to rush to make it in the fashion world. In any style, he was a front page attraction.
One of Princess Diana’s famous dresses is going up for auction. Diana’s famous purple gown was designed by British fashion designer Victor Edelstein. He was Princess Diana’s personal dress designer for over a decade. Diana wore the purple strapless ball gown made of silk and velvet several times.
First worn in 1989, it was part of designer Victor Edelstein’s autumn collection. The gown was later seen in the 1991 Royal Portrait painting. She was last seen in this gown in a Vanity Fair photoshoot a few months before her death in 1997. The dress was then auctioned off in aid of a cancer hospital.
Before her death, Diana auctioned 80 dresses from her personal collection. Part of it was this famous purple gown. At that time the gown was sold for around 24 thousand dollars (about 24 lakh taka in current market price). The purple gown will be auctioned for the second time in New York on January 27. The dress is being auctioned by Sotheby’s as part of ‘The One’ collection. It is believed that this time the price of this gown will break the previous record. This time its price may rise from 83 lakhs to 1 crore 24 lakhs.
