The Enchanted Palace

Kensington palace has been enchanted!!

LPT staff are up and about and finding out the new and exciting events and exhibitions around London.

The Enchanted Palace merges history with fashion and story telling, to give an exciting twist to the tale of the seven princesses that once lived at the palace. Visitors go on a quest to find the seven princesses, each room captivates the life of a different princess and its your task to discover the clues to complete the quest.

The room of flight dedicated to Princess Charlotte, shows a beautiful Vivienne Westwood dress suspended in air and fleeing down the king’s grand staircase.

LPT loved the merging of new designs with historical ones and how the dresses captivate not only the beauty of the princesses but each era, also the designers own personal detail and attitude that make this exhibition so wonderful to visit.

The enchanted palace incorporates the work of: Dame Vivienne Westwood, Paul Costelloe, Zandra Rhodes, Bruce Oldfield, Maria Theresa Fernandes.
