About the item

A long evening dress of lilac wild silk, with an embroidered bolero Designer - Catherine Walker A lilac silk dress with a bodice embroidered overall with pink and white flowers, green & star shaped sequins, gold glass beads and gold braid in Mughal motifs. The long sleeved bolero jacket embroidered overall en suite with the dress. Both pieces labelled: Catherine Walker, London. "Designed for Diana's State Tour of India in 1992, it is a reflection of the depth of research performed by Catherine Walker before designing an important dress such as this. Its long sleeves and other salient features are in perfect keeping with India's cultural standards. Embroidered in the Mughal fashion, it is a tapestry of flowers, sequins and gold, giving the appearance of encrusted jewels." 'My Decade With Diana: The Perpetual Power of the People's Princess', G.A. McNulty, 2007, pg 46
