I saw this exhibition some time ago and have been remiss in alerting you – so apologies for the delay, it’s finishing soon. No photos of my own to show you (strictly forbidden) but I can assure it’s well worth seeing, if you’re enjoying the fabulous costumes of the TV series or love ’20s style. Plus: Rippon Lea is a beautiful place and always worth a visit.

From the National Trust site:
The popular ABC TV series Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries will return to Rippon Lea this spring with a major exhibition featuring the sumptuous costumes worn by the Hon. Phryne Fisher and her cohorts. The house and gardens, which features in the series as the home of Aunt Prudence, will once again be transformed as the doors open to the Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries Costume Exhibition on the 7th September.
More than 30 outfits worn by the lead cast including Miss Phryne Fisher (Essie Davis), Dectective Inspector Jack Robinson (Nathan Page) and Aunt Prudence (Miriam Margolyes) from both series one and the soon to be broadcast series two of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries will be showcased in the exhibition.
Visitors will be taken on a journey in to the creation of the many worlds of Miss Fisher with insight from Kerry Greenwood, the author of the Phryne Fisher mysteries series of books, Fiona Eagger and Deb Cox, producers of the popular ABC TV series and Marion Boyce, the costume designer for the TV series.
Thank you to the National Trust for inviting me to see the exhibition – my favourite costume was Jack’s wool gabardine coat with the unexpected red lining. I can’t believe I hadn’t noticed that revealing detail before and now of course, it’s all I see.
I hope we get a third season! Friday nights won’t be the same without my weekly Miss Fisher.
