Many of the Duchess of Windsor’s gowns are on display at Candé, including her wedding dress. Some are originals but the wedding dress is, I think, a replica ~ I can’t remember exactly. It's very demure and a lovely shade of powder blue.
A lot of her other dresses would not look out of place if worn today. Some styles never go out of fashion. I have seen TV footage of coats just like that pink one being worn by our royals very recently.
The evening dresses were beautiful.
The hats were stylish.
I was especially interested to see the jewellery and I was not disappointed there. You very rarely see brooches being worn these days, maybe because most people wear anoraks of some kind rather than a formal coat or jacket, including me.
There was a definite animal theme going on ~ I liked the panther head necklace and flamingo brooch.
