Night Life Exhibition at Rippon Lea Estate




Be transported to a time where stars, sophistication and city lights influenced the fashion worn by the well-dressed. 

Night Life is an exhibition drawn from the fashion collection of the National Trust of Australia (Victoria). It also includes the work of contemporary Melbourne stylists and photographers who see this era through modern eyes. 

The exhibition features over 50 gowns as well as accessories, which reveal embellished surfaces, ornamentation and pattern, with many made locally in Victoria. 

Night Life showcases a dynamic and visually impressive time in Victoria's fashion history over 20 years from the early 1920s to the Moderne style of the 30s.
