As part of its new showcase of Her Majesty the Queen’s evening dresses from the 1960s, “Fit For A Queen: Her Majesty Queen Sirikit’s Creations by Balmain, the Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles (QSMT) at the Grand Palace is hosting a talk entitled “Fit For a Queen: Creating Her Majesty Queen Sirikit’s Western Wardrobe” this Thursday (January 18) starting at 1.30pm to 3.45pm in its auditorium.

Led by co-curators Melissa Leventon and Alisa Saisavetvaree, the talk will illuminate the fruitful two-decade relationship between Her Majesty Queen Sirikit and French couturier Pierre Balmain, which began during the preparations for Their Majesties’1960 state visit to Europe and the United States. 

The collaboration resulted in a stylish, elegant and regal wardrobe that made Her Majesty recognised as one of the best-dressed women in the world. A curator-led exhibition tour will follow the talk and is available in English, with a brief summary in Thai. Admission is Bt250 and seating is limited, so advance registration is required.
