RR to sell Princess Diana fabric archive as highlight of Remarkable Rarities auction, Sept. 2018

RR Auction’s Remarkable Rarities auction (online bidding Sept. 13-24; live auction in Boston on Sept. 25) will feature an exciting lot of Princess Diana memorabilia: A fabric archive used in developing a wardrobe for her 1986 “Gulf Tour.”

In November 1986, Princess Diana and Prince Charles made a six-day tour of the Arabian Gulf states, and she desired to dress respectfully of the culture. Already receiving worldwide press attention, the Princess Diana 1986 Gulf Tour archive consists of fabric samples and related paperwork for her trip wardrobe, originating from the shop of David and Elizabeth Emanuel – the famous designers of her iconic wedding dress. The Emanuels also designed more than 100 different outfits for Diana for special occasions and for when she traveled abroad.

Princess Diana sweatshirt

In the September Fine Autographs and Artifacts auction (through Sept. 12), our Royalty section is lead by a gift that the People’s Princess gave to an employee of her love interest. Princess Diana gave her personally worn, cream-colored Ralph Lauren Polo Sports sweatshirt to Deborah Gribble, the chief stewardess of Dodi Fayed’s family yacht Jonikal, the night before Diana and Fayed were killed in a car crash in the Pont de l’Alma road tunnel as they attempted to evade paparazzi, on August 31, 1997. After more than 20 years, Gribble is parting with the item, to much media attention.

*** POST-AUCTION UPDATE: This item sold for $7,514.
