I am an academic and writer living in Melbourne. I love to travel and I also love writing about all the things Melbourne, regional Victoria and other parts of Australia have to offer.
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.
