1920s Evening Gowns – SOLD OUT

The Cavalcade of History and Fashion

Please note this event has now sold out

See what happens when artists and fashion designers collaborate. Along with cutting hair short, the corset was discarded and the waistline dropped to the hips. Beaded and sequinned gowns caught the light as you danced the Charleston. See original examples from this dazzling era.

Bookings essential, either online or by phoning the Gallery on 4735 1100. Tickets include an afternoon tea.

Plus, don’t miss the opportunity to take a photo with a 1929 Ford Model A at 2pm during the afternoon tea.

A Cavalcade presentation includes examples from the collection with commentary. The Cavalcade of History and Fashion is an organisation with a collection of original historic gowns and accessories with provenance, dating from the 1700s preserving Australia’s social and fashion history.
