[Exhibition] Jenny Kee and Linda Jackson at the Powerhouse

Opening today, is a wonderful new exhibition at Sydney’s Powerhouse museum, celebrating our colourful fashion designers Jenny Kee and Linda Jackson. From the website:

Jenny Kee and Linda Jackson: Step Into Paradise, an immersive exhibition, is the first in-depth survey that captures the dynamic energy of Linda and Jenny’s creative partnership. It draws on more than four decades of one of the most influential pairings in the history of Australian fashion, examining the influences, inspirations and the compelling stories behind their work.

I have a Luna Park knitted dress from Jenny in my collection, circa 1980 (similar to this one, hopefully on display in the exhibition) and this is a reminder to get it out and enjoy it. It’s super colourful and fun.
