Location informationNFSA Acton
Event cost(18+) $25, includes complimentary glass of bubbly on arrival

Catch an evening viewing of The Dressmaker Costume Exhibition and join us for a night of 1950s fashion and fun!

Come dressed in your finest vintage wear, or bring a prized piece for discussion with an NFSA curator, catch a swing dance demonstration (and learn a step or two) from Savoy Dance - all to the backdrop of the swinging five-piece Dan McLean Big Band.

You’ll be able to view a delightful sample of European and Australian fashion films from the 1940s and '50s in Arc cinema, or hear from one of the NFSA curators who will be delivering floor talks with interesting insights into the exhibition throughout the night.
