Lots of notice for this one as it doesn’t open until October, but probably worth making plans for:
Those lovely people at the Bendigo Art Gallery really are becoming the premier destination for fashion exhibitions – this year they’re giving us something new and different: the best of ’80s and ’90s fashion, sourced from the museum of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. Great to see them forging strong links with important overseas collections.
“Starting with a Vivienne Westwood-Malcolm McLaren T-shirt and denim collaboration, the collection of almost 60 items from the museum of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles will offer a glimpse of garments from some of the biggest names in contemporary fashion – Issey Miyake, Alexander McQueen, Karl Lagerfeld and Miuccia Prada among them.
The exhibition also breaks into 21st-century design, including a paper dress from 2002 by Sarah Caplan for MPH depicting the twin towers of the World Trade Centre before the 2001 terrorist attacks.”
What: Modern Love, fashion exhibition
When: October 26th to February 2nd, Open daily 10am â€“ 5pm
