On April 2, 2012, Her Royal Highness Princess Caroline of Hanover opened the Princesse Grace: Habiller une Image exhibition held at the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco, Villa Sauber.
The exhibition was developed in “…collaboration between the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco, the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and Pringle of Scotland.”
According to the official website for the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco the exhibition was created by:
…the BA Fashion Course History & Theory students who carried out extensive research into the wardrobe of Princess Grace of Monaco through accessing archives of personal contacts of the Palace, as well as Institutions in the Principality including the Prince’s Palace Archives and Library, the Archives Audiovisuelles de Monaco, the Bibliothèque Municipale Louis Notari, and the Garden Club of Monaco.
The research focused on Princess Grace’s daily wardrobe, particularly knitwear and Pringle of Scotland archive styles, and how this was essential to her personal interests and passions. The findings will be debuted in an Exhibition hosted by the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco- an intimate study capturing her style in the most relaxed and familial situations. The second stage of the project, set to launch in September will see Pringle of Scotland and the Central Saint Martins MA Fashion Design students take aesthetic elements from the exhibition and translate them into a knitwear capsule collection.
