This Wednesday the Stitches and Craft Show opens at the Showgrounds. There’s an impressive line-up of events (you can see a pdf show guide here), and amongst them will be the first Melbourne showing of the Darnell Collection, hosted by Sydney’s ESMOD school of fashion.
Circa has been invited to make a small contribution – we’re lending them five of our best vintage mannequins for a display on the history of mannequins. Look out for Emily (Edwardian), Fay (late ’20s-early ’30s), Lola (early ’40s), Marlene (late ’40s) and Betty (’50s).
So this week – for the first and probably last time – we’ll be without our girls and so you’ll see dressmaker’s dummies with Clark (our male mannequin) in the window and on the floor. The girls will be back next week.
