Laura Ashely

Laura Ashely was one of Lady Diana Spencer’s favorite designers as a young teenager.  A large number of items were given to staff members in early 1980's as they were going to be sent to a charity shop or disposed of. It was a time when there was a clean out of Lady Diana's room by her step mother Countess Raine Spencer. A number of items were gifted to different staff members to do what they wanted with them.
