The exhibition includes over 50 delicate pieces, including a rare bequest, and the works of contemporary Melbourne stylists, designers and photographers who view the era through modern eyes.
Over the exhibition’s three month duration there will be a series of events including themed soirees, fashion high teas and daytime activities such as design workshops and curator talks. More.
The exhibition is open daily, 10am to 4pm at Rippon Lea House and Gardens from 5 May to 30 July 2017.

During this time the internal furniture and fixtures may have been removed, adjusted or replaced to accommodate the exhibition pieces. Regular tours of the mansion won’t be offered during the exhibition period and will only re-commence after all original furniture and fixtures have been re-installed and once the exhibition has ended.
