From the website:
At Barwon Park Mansion, be transported to the dusty town of Dungatar in the 1950s, and experience the journey of transformation through the artful and luxurious costumes worn by Kate Winslet and the cast of The Dressmaker.

The exhibition will reveal how the costumes, inspired by Parisian couture, were made and developed for the film. Visitors will be able to see the level of detail and artisanship which went into making the costumes.

The location of the exhibition and the beauty of the costumes create a wonderful incongruous and unexpected quality which captures the spirit of the film. It celebrates fashion and the Australian landscape.

When: 11am to 4pm, Wednesday to Sunday 11 December 2015 to 11 March 2016
Where: Barwon Park Mansion, 105 Inverleigh Road Winchelsea

  1. Loved this exhibition. My only surprise was not to see the shoes which I loved in the movie. Such a shame as the exhibition had dresses, hats and bags everything but the ladies shoes did not appear anywhere. The shoes I feel would have completed this wonderful exhibition. I love 50s inspired shoes. ps Just remembered…. The matador outfit had the black flats. So yes one pair of shoes .
