Fit for a Princess * Kerry Taylor Auction of Diana, Princess of Wales Iconic Dresses * 19 March 2013 * Bermondsey, London

In June, 1997 the Princess decided to hold a charity auction of her most lavish evening wear at the suggestion of her young son, Prince William. It was her aim to raise as much money as possible to help people in need – but also she desired that the dresses, so long stored away in wardrobes should again see the light of day and be appreciated.
One of the purchasers at that auction was Mrs Maureen Rorech Dunkel who bought arguably the most important and representative group of gowns. It is this collection that is offered for sale now. Mrs Dunkel initially bought the dresses as a long term investment, but after the tragic death of the Princess in August 1997, decided to exhibit them in aid of charity and has philanthropically raised thousands of dollars to that end.

The story of these ten rare and special dresses now continues…
