Last week I helped set up an exhibition of vintage and antique dress at Buda, an historic house in Castlemaine. Included are several garments from my personal collection, from the 1890s to the 1950s, as well as items from other collectors. With a focus on embroideries and hand-worked techniques, it’s a rare opportunity to see a century of garments within a beautiful Victorian home environment, surrounded by lovely arts and crafts furniture and decor.
