Event: -
Glitz and Glamour of the Past
Think silk, velvet, pearls, glitz and glamorous evening clothes, hand stitched and made with care and creativity; here you have the new exhibition at Ripponlea, Night Life. The setting for this exhibition could not be more perfect, a heritage house with the requisite ambience and sense of history and halcyon days of 1920s and 30s evening parties, elegant women and suave, well-dressed men.

The fashion exhibition is exhibited throughout the historic Mmansion and gives visitors a chance to revisit the history of the nightclubs and dance halls of the past through the fashions of that era. The curator of the exhibition, Elizabeth Anya-Petrivna, has succeeded in putting together a collection that not only illustrates the past but adds elements of modernity.
