Last year I had a small role as a 1930s dressmaker in a documentary by Lesley Sharon Rosenthal called “Chapel of Chic” about the historical fashion industry based around Chapel Street.
The film has screened twice to aclaim and is scheduled for a third screening at ACMI on June 14th. I’m looking forward to seeing it at last, as I wasn’t able to make the last two.
Here is a still that Tim took on the day – in front of a beautiful vintage Terraplane – and above: gracing the publicity poster. I’m wearing a 1920s coat, fox fur and hat, as well as carrying several white blouses (my character was making a delivery to a Toorak customer).
