The Enchanted Palace, Kensington Palace.

Kensington Palace has over gone a majestic transformation. Opening its doors and transporting you into an enchanted world to explore the tales of the palaces princesses in a truly magical experience. The exhibition intertwines contemporary fashion, performance and dream like installations which exceeds your expectations. This fun, interactive expedition tells the story and secrets of the princesses which have broken free in the palace, as the viewer you are encouraged to embark on a quest to discover these enchanted tales.

Fashion collides with ceremonial dress collections from the palace, with a little help from designers such as Vivienne Westwood, William Tempest and Echo Morgan. Who regularly use the palaces collection of royal dresses for their research. The multi-sensory experience was created in association with Cornish theatre company WildWorks.

There were seven princesses to find and the different rooms were named and dressed appropriately. Installations such as an oversized bed and high chair really played on the theme of an enchanted palace, with actor’s constant story telling keeping the fairy tale alive. From the invitation to the trimmings the attention to detail was fantastic. Animating history in such a wonderful way by adding a new dimension has defiantly been a success.

  1. This is a great exhibition! It's intersting to see conceptual artists such as Emma Gibson from The John Hour showing thought provoking objects alongside impressive creations from Vivienne Westwood and Boudicca.

    I really recommend a visit.
