3 Sep 2021 to 26 Sep 2021 Annual Event
Showcase Wangaratta Inc. presents an exhibition that offers a glimpse of the essential accessories for the stylish and well-dressed from the 1880s to the 1960s. To be stylish and well dressed, hats, shoes, handbags, furs, gloves and jewellery were carefully selected to enhance an outfit, catch the eye or be versatile for different occasions.
Wangaratta was well placed with local retailers including the ‘Co – Store’, Callanders or the many local tailors, milliners and dressmakers, who were able to source the best quality fabrics and latest fashion ideas for all seasons and events. By the 1950s magazines shared the glamorous styles from the European fashion houses and movies inspired everyone to be chic for any occasion.
This exhibition offers a selection of garments and accessories from local collectors.
