Inspired by the expansive private specimen collection of Walter Rothschild housed by the Natural History Museum at Tring, the 2nd Lord Rothschilds eccentric obsession has proven fertile ground for the creation of three new couture dresses by Mary Katrantzou. On display at the opulent Waddesdon Manor estate until the 27th October 2017, the capsule collection showcases a shimmering sunray pleated tiered gowns alongside intricate hand beaded dresses, embellished with glistening insects formed from Swarovski crystals.
To coincide with the exhibition launch, an exclusive range of plates and mugs featuring the collection are available to purchase through www.marykatrantzou.com and the exhibition pop up show.
To celebrate the launch of the Creatures and Creations exhibition at Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire, Lord Rothschild and Wendy Yu opened the doors of the former Rothschild residence to celebrate Mary's exhibition couture contributions.Behind the Party
