In honor of the auspicious occasion of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit’s 7th cycle birthday anniversary on August 12, 2016, the Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles will mount Fit For A Queen, a new exhibition that focuses on the 22-year-long working relationship between Her Majesty and French couturier Pierre Balmain.
The exhibition will offer visitors the chance to view more than 30 of Her Majesty’s most stylish daytime, cocktail, and evening dresses, plus related accessories and several pieces of the luggage custom-made by Louis Vuitton for Their Majesties, most never before displayed. Design sketches and embroidery swatches lent by Balmain S.A. and the House of Lesage in Paris will help illuminate the design and creation processes. The exhibition will be further enriched by period footage and photographs.
The museum is located inside the Grand Palace complex in Bangkok. The exhibition will run through June 2018.
