The exhibition Fit for a Queen: HM Queen Sirikit’s Creations by Balmain focuses on her relationships with Pierre Balmain and François Lesage, two legendary French couturiers who created dresses for the monarch during her trips to Europe and America.

These pieces are displayed alongside pictures of the Queen wearing them at different occasions during her trips to Europe and America in the 1960s, as well as the rarely-seen Louis Vuitton trunks that were used to transport the dresses.
