Crime Fighting Fashion
Terribly fashionable, unmistakably glamorous, handy with a pistol... Have you met the honourable Miss Phryne Fisher?


The National Trust together with Every Cloud productions presents an exquisite exhibition displaying the opulent costumes, props and furniture used in the ABC TV series Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, based on the novels by Australian author Kerry Greenwood.


The exhibition is currently housed at Old Government House in Parramatta until June 19, 2016. Costume designer Marion Boyce takes you on a journey through the 1920s crime fighting world of Miss Phryne Fisher, played by Essie Davis, proving that a 'lady detective' can still solve grisly murders while emanating class in heels with a pearl encrusted revolver stashed in her black beaded Chantilly lace dress.


The exhibition pays particular attention to the costumes that appear in Series 3 of the popular ABC show. It offers insights into the design and development of the costume making process with samples of the materials made available to feel as you wander through the historic rooms of Old Government House. As you emerge from the exhibition, you can't help but feel inspired to treat yourself to a unique piece of 1920s attire from the gift shop and embrace the dramas of the day with a fur stole and pearls.
