Open daily from 10am to 4pm at Rippon Lea Estate
27 July to 4 November 2018
Celebrate one of the most eclectic fashion decades – when fashion broke the rules.
1970s fashion was diverse, unconventional and contradictory. A time when day wear could be evening wear and gender fluidity and feminist politics challenged the prevailing trends and social ideologies. It was simultaneously the decade of retro decadence and the golden age of science fiction. The decade began with vintage bricolage and ended with a complete rejection of hippy utopia when punk crashed through disco’s hedonism.
Super 70s examines what Melburnians wore during this iconic decade, whether rocking out to Sherbet at Festival Hall, social gatherings in South Yarra or partying in a student share house in Carlton.
