London, England, United Kingdom (AHN) – This year is especially busy and festive for England. The Queen celebrates her diamond jubilee and London will host the summer Olympics. In keeping with the celebratory mode, the storied department store Harrods is hosting its own special attraction.
In honor of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, and in conjunction with the Victoria & Albert Museum’s exhibition, “Ballgowns: British Glamour since 1950,” Harrods will host a pop-up ballgown boutique.
Featured will be designs by some of fashion’s biggest names including Erdem, Nina Ricci, Roberto Cavalli and Valentino. The fabulous fashions will adorn the store’s famous Brompton Road windows.
The fabled store’s other windows will highlight a custom-built display of crowns, each of which is based on a replica of the St. Edwards’s coronation crown.
These will be created by 32 leading labels, including De Beers, Faberge, Solange Azagury Partridge and Theo Fennell.
The chic exhibition will be on display for one month starting May 15.
Fashionistas will have the opportunity to purchase the designs through one-to-one consultations at The Penthouse at Harrods.
