She cares for a Designated Collection of 10,000 items of royal, court and ceremonial dress dating back to the sixteenth-century. She has curated a number of major fashion exhibitions, most recently Diana: Her Fashion Story at Kensington Palace.

She is also researching the Bacton Altar Cloth, a c.1600 elite court dress with an interesting provenance to Elizabeth I’s own wardrobe.
