I do like it how mini-exhibitions can pop-up around town. Yesterday, I found this mini-exhibition in the Block Arcade, showcasing 20th Century Fashion from the 1910’s to then 1980’s. I love fashion history, and it was through the history of fashion/costume that my broader love of history grew.
Out of this collection, my favourites would be the dress from the 1940’s which is stunning, and the butterfly dress from the 1950’s, though I also quite like the one from the 1910’s. I find it so amazing to see how not just styles but materials, shapes, sizes, patterns, colours and accessories change in fashion over time.
Which is your favourite 20th Century decade for fashion (going by the examples below)?
