Stella Tennant, Duchesses Georgiana and Deborah in Stellar Line Up for Chatsworth House Style

By  |  Comments

Sponsored by GUCCI, House Style: Five Centuries of Fashion at Chatsworth exhibition opens Saturday, March 25. Duchesses Georgiana and Deborah, supermodel Stella Tennant, dancer Adele Astaire and Kathleen “Kick” Kennedy, JFK’s sister are in stellar line of iconic women connected with Chatsworth throughout the centuries.

Amanda and I are very grateful to our daughter-in-law Laura Burlington and the team for having the vision and determination to bring this exhibition to life. The breadth and diversity of what is on display in House Style, combined with the manner in which it is shown, makes this our most ambitious exhibition to date. As someone who does not claim to know a great deal about fashion, I would certainly recommend House Style to all-comers, as the clothes are really a jumping off point into different moments of 500 years of history. – The Duke of Devonshire

It is so exciting to see the designs become a reality for this complex and layered exhibition. House Style has developed over the last six years to encompass far more than we originally envisaged when we first started delving into the Chatsworth archive. In some cases, clothes that haven’t seen each other since the 19th century are being reunited. I hope visitors will appreciate the scale and ambition of the exhibition, and enjoy exploring the stories that this clothing and memorabilia reveal about the Cavendish family. – Lady Burlington
