Last weekend I went to Bendigo to check out the Modern Love exhibition at Bendigo Art Gallery. This exhibition is a collection of clothing from some of the world’s most influential designers loaned from FIDM Museum at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles. From Valentino, Christian Dior and Vivienne Westwood, to Issey Miyake, Chanel and Zac Posen, this is an exhibition of significant pieces that speak of the time they were designed. Pieces that have changed fashion or influenced the mass market.
The exhibition finishes on 2 February – so if you’re interested in seeing a fabulous range of gorgeous clothing close up – I highly recommend you get yourself to Bendigo. Find out more about the exhibition here.
I love to see fashion exhibits and am fortunate that there have been many wonderful ones in NYC. In February FIT will be starting an exhibit about fashion in a time of crisis – the 1930s which sounds great.
I don’t know if you are familiar with the Darnell Collection which is managed by Charlotte Smith. She is based in Australia and has written 2 books about the collection “Dreaming of Dior” and “Dreaming of Chanel”.
I have both those books!
