British history is having a stylish moment. The Young Victoria won the Oscar for Best Costume Design, while Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland has inspired everything from nail polish to jewelry collections. Now, a few British fashion designers have added their touch to rooms in London’s Kensington Palace. The designers have created installations for The Enchanted Palace, a dreamlike, multisensory exhibition inspired by the stories of the residence’s past inhabitants.
