We were staying just an hour away from Bendigo in Shepparton for Christmas so I managed to convince Ben and the boys and my sister and her family to drive there on Christmas eve to see the exhibition.
This is a little write up from the Modern Love website:
A lot of sewers have already been and there are great write-ups from, among others Carolyn, Maria and especially TJ who was able to preview a number of the dresses.
We all have different favourites so it really is worth checking out their posts, or even better just get down to Bendigo Art Gallery and see it. Bendigo is the exclusive venue for the exhibition in Australia and it's on until the 2 February so if you can get there do. The exhibition is perfectly put together with a fantastic toe tapping sound track jam packed of plenty of 80s and 90s hits. The huge projector which shows excerpts of the runway shows for each item was mesmorising and I could have lounged on those big round poufs/ottomans for hours. Afterwards I had to go back and re look at the items after seeing them on the catwalk (especially the Chanel jacket!!).
Photography is allowed, no flash, so the quality of the photos isn't perfect and I haven't included all my favourites just a couple.
I really loved the whole exhibition and just felt so lucky to have got down there. Here are just a couple of my favourites:
1. Chloe. Evening ensemble Spring/Summer 1983
2. Caroline Herrera 2003
3. Alexander McQueen
4 Valentino 2000 Spring/Summer.
