The DRESSMAKER Costume Exhibition
EXTENDED BY POPULAR DEMAND
Closes this Sunday 30th May 2022
Presented in partnership with the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA) and FilmArt Media this exhibition celebrates the artistry of the film’s sumptuous designs, as well as the transformational power of fashion. Audiences will be able to go ‘behind the seams’ of a diverse range of elegant vintage fashion worn by Hollywood stars and Aussie acting talent. Costuming is key to any film, but fashion took on a profound level of importance in The Dressmaker. The costumes were created by award-winning designer and exhibition curator Marion Boyce.
This exhibition is supported by the National Collecting Institutions Touring and Outreach Program, an Australian Government program aiming to improve access to the national collections for all Australians.
