A small group of fellow Red Hatters went to a private clothing collection museum in Bulleen. It was amazing! The woman who runs it focuses on everyday Australian clothing pieces (from settlement until modern times), and also collects the reference materials (advertisements, magazines etc.) so that she has reference to how the items are worn as the entire completed outfit – what hairstyles and accessories would be worn as well. To give you an accurate picture of what women wore through history.
It was FABULOUS! I’d love to go again!
(Lots of great costume inspiration for Steampunk/Victorian cosplay!)
