To accompany the Mannequin Exhibition at the National Trust’s Como House, I’m presenting a series of talks. The first one is about fashions of the ’50s and and the second will focus on Melbourne fashions of the ’60s using some of my favourite locally-made couture.

This one, the last one will be more of a workshop, about accessorising and putting an outfit together to create an appropriate look, using gloves, handbags, hats and other accoutrements. I’ll bring some of my favourite pieces made by local couturiers during the time.

You can come to any or all and a season ticket is only $70.
