Once again, The Way We Wear Fair will be happening in the Williamstown Town Hall – from the website:
Racks filled with fabulous fashion spanning over two hundred years. Boxes full of photographs of fashionably dressed men and women. Shelves bursting with crisp, starched French and Irish linen. Polished wooden cabinets full of glittering jewels. Exotic textiles from lands far beyond Australia’s shores draped across tables…This is what awaits you at The Way We Wear Fairs.
TWWWF always features an exhibition of costume, and this time to mark the centennial of the launch of the Titanic, costumes and accessories from 1910 to 1912 will be displayed. Fans of “Downton Abbey” will be sure to recognise the late Edwardian styles. It’s a personal favourite of mine (although I tend to love every era, they all have something good to share).
And the contest? I have two double passes to win – if you’ll be in Melbourne on the date in question and would like to go, please leave me a comment on this post about who is your favourite Downton Abbey character and why – if you’re yet to have the pleasure, you could always get creative. Good luck! Entries close July 14th, and then I’ll post the winners.
