Inside the Collection

Red, white and green- a festive look at the fashion collection

Many fashion blogs and sites at the moment are focusing on what to wear for Christmas. This year, women’s fashions include dresses heavily embellished with sequins, lace and shiny fabrics. Interesting when I am sure, most Australians will just end up in T-shirts playing some sort of sport in the backyard.
Never-the-less it’s often the tradition around Christmas time to buy a new dress or outfit. With this in mind, I’d like to share with you some of the more festive dresses in the Museums collection.
