Dior's postwar 'New Look' comes to Australia

Take your front row seat for this collection which illuminates postwar Australia through glorious vintage fashion.

Fashion communicates who we are, and who we want to be. Designer Christian Dior called haute couture 'one of the last repositories of the marvellous'.

The collection features spectacular footage of Christian Dior's 'New Look' when Sydney hosted the first Dior fashion show outside of Paris in 1948.

You'll also see fashion shows on ice, in the air, off the sheep's back, around the schoolyard and rare colour footage from Mark Foy's department store.

This collection complements The Dressmaker Costume Exhibition.
