[Exhibition] Fashion Meets Fiction

A new exhibition of fashions from the Darnell Collection has opened in Upwey.

  1. Hi Nicole, is this business still operational? I have a very old family christening gown and petticoat which has been hot at a little by those pesky moths and in much need of restoration.
