Australia on Collins exhibition

Earlier this week I bumped out the “Fashion through the Decades” exhibition at Australia on Collins: if you missed it, here are some pics.

It was well received and with a bit of luck, hopefully we’ll be able to stage another one some time.

The 1940s lady is dressed head to toe in items from my own wardrobe! I wore the clown print dress to Charlotte Smith’s event at last year’s Writer’s Festival and the art deco style brooch usually graces my ’50s wool boucle jacket. Such a pity there wasn’t a pink wig to complete the ensemble (not very 1940s, I know).

This is the first time Circa has exhibited fashion from the ’90s but don’t get excited: I’m not ready to consider the 1990s as old enough to be “vintage”, just that it helps with the context of this exhibition.

Thank you to Australia on Collins and Kinc Agency for offering Circa this opportunity and Kelley from the Lindy Charm School for Girls for her assistance. Most of all, thank you to everyone who came along and saw the displays.

  1. I popped along to see the dresses last Saturday as I am very keen on the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s and I particularly liked the green dress which was very reminiscent of Keira Knightly in Atonement I thought. If only I had the body for that one.
