Diamante and Pearl Mantua Dress hanging decoration
Designed exclusively for Historic Royal Palaces, this stunning hanging decoration is inspired by the extravagant ceremonial court mantua dresses worn at Kensington Palace in the Georgian period. The ultimate 18th century fashion statement of wealth, refinement and taste was displayed in finest silk and satin brocades, fantastically patterned and embroidered fabrics with flora and fauna, and is wonderfully captured in this opulent decoration. Beautifully handmade by artisans using the traditional zardozi technique of silver and gold metal thread embroidery, the flamboyant fabric patterning is exquisitely executed with dazzling diamante crystals, shimmering faux pearls, silver metal thread and real lace flounces, on a white background with a foam filling. The attention to detail extends to the hanging ribbon with added sparkle. A luxurious memento of your visit to Kensington Palace, or a wonderful gift for any history loving fashionista. Your tree has never looked so fabulous!
Part of the Crown to Couture range where the glittering world of the Georgian court comes head-to-head with the high glamour of the modern-day red carpet in a new exhibition at Kensington Palace.
