After Princess Diana died in 1997, her designer, Marc Jacobs, was the first to take her iconic look on the road.
But she also left behind a series of fashion-related items that have become iconic over the years, from the original red carpet for her 1988 coronation to her original runway looks at the 2002 Vanity Fair Gala.
One of these items, the original collection of her famous couture, has been sold for $8.2 million.
In the meantime, the fashion world has taken notice.
A couple of days after the sale, Marc said he had purchased a new collection of couture from the British fashion house Dior and was planning to auction it off.
“The couture is in storage now,” Marc said on “CBS This Morning.”
“We just don’t want to waste it.
I just love it.
But it’s still very personal to me.”
The collection includes the original gowns, which Marc Jacobs designed for the Queen, as well as the gowns worn by Diana and Princess Eugenie at the coronation, the wedding and other events.
There are also some items that are still made in the couture studio, including the original dresses worn by Princess Eugensia, and the gown worn by the Duchess of Cornwall at her wedding.
Marc Jacobs’ original collection is still available for $1.6 million.
