Speaking of Collette Dinnegan, there’s an excellent retrospective currently on display in Sydney at the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences/Powerhouse.
From the site:
Exclusive to the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney, Collette Dinnigan: Unlaced is the first exhibition to explore the work of this internationally acclaimed Australian fashion designer.
