Miranda picnic dress - costume
Anne Louise Lambert, who played Miranda in Picnic at Hanging Rock, provided the NFSA with the following notes on her costume: 'The daisy pattern in the lace trim of the dress was Miranda’s favourite flower. The butterfly-buckle was selected because like her, their lives are beautiful and brief.’
Judith Dorsman was the chief costume designer for Picnic. She was only 26 years old at the time the film was released and collaborated with Wendy Stiles (director Peter Weir’s wife, working under her maiden name) with assistance from Mandy Smith.
