This impeccably cut pillar-box red suit is a fabulous example of Catherine Walker — Diana’s all-time favourite designer — at her finest.
Worn to a public engagement launching the HIV/Aids charity London Lighthouse appeal in 1996, the slim-fitting blazer, with trademark shoulder pads and gold button details, flares at the hips, adding feminine curves.
There was an instinctive bond between Diana and Walker.
The couturier knew not just how to play to the Princess’s strengths but to use her clothes to send out a distinct message: I am a confident, working woman.
Diana deliberately chose not to wear gloves, particularly when meeting Aids patients, and liked to wear bright, cheerful colours in order to lighten the mood.
