Princess Diana's Black Ballgown Up For Sale
Also up for sale is the calico prototype used to fit her ivory wedding gown. That prototype is estimated at between 8,000 and 12,000 pounds ($12,000 to $17,000). The sale also includes the the silk chiffon blouse chosen for the Princess of Wales' official engagement portrait by Lord Snowdon. It is hoped that the pieces will go to a museum but could end up in a private collection. Many of Diana's dresses have been sold for thousands of dollars. The collection up for sale from David and Elizabeth Emanuel also includes sketches, notes, invoices, providing a complete picture of the creation of a Royal look.
