VAMFF ARTS PROGRAM 2019
LECTURE: LINKS & LINEAGES | The Krystyna Campbell-Pretty Fashion Giftwith Paola Di Trocchio
Monday 4 March | 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
The Krystyna Campbell-Pretty Fashion Gift is a microcosm of the world of haute couture and Parisian fashion from the late 19th century to the 21st century. With nearly 200 garments and an extensive fashion research collection comprising hundreds of designers’ sketches; workbooks; photographs; and fashion magazines, journals and periodicals from the early 19th century onwards, the collection reflects historical developments in fashion in Paris, revealing interconnections between designers, and frequently the synergistic development or evolution of skills and techniques. This talk will explore a number of those connections. Ticket: $20 + $3.50 booking fee.
The Johnston Collection is located in a residential area. We do not publish our address.
All visitors must arrive via The Johnston Collection courtesy bus with pick-up at the Pullman Melbourne on the Park, 192 Wellington Parade, East Melbourne ten minutes before the event start time.
