One of our major collectors of Australian fashion is currently rehoming her collection. Based in Lismore, rural Victoria (about two hours from Melbourne), it’s an opportunity to find some wonderful vintage for a reasonable price – and ensure that Dorothy’s legacy lives on.
Dorothy’s been collecting for decades, mostly from op shops and focuses on womenswear. I had a quick look recently and there was a good selection from Victorian to ’80s, including clothing, uniforms and accessories. Especially good on ’60-80s. Some of the garments have been used in vintage fashion parades and community events.
- What: the Dorothy Nichol collection sale
