Age of Elegance: Fashionable Living in Victorian Adelaide

You’re invited to a party. 150 years ago.

Be swept into the spirit of Adelaide high society during the Victorian era with a stunning new costume exhibition.

Ayers House, home of Sir Henry Ayers during South Australia’s most glittering decades, is alive again with the sights, sounds, smells and sensations of the most lavish parties ever seen in Adelaide.

Acclaimed costumier Marion Boyce (Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, The Dressmaker) presents authentic period costumes transformed into a breathtaking experience of elegant living in Adelaide's grandest Victorian home.

Age of Elegance is the perfect complement to the Art Gallery of South Australia’s Colours of Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay exhibition covering France’s Impressionist painters of the same period.
