Photos: 200 years of fashion

The National Gallery of Victoria ‘Australia’ location at Federation Square in Melbourne currently has a ‘200 Years of Australian Fashion‘ exhibition on. It is beautiful, and a bit of fun. Each room is themed to the era, down to the music that is playing in the room you are standing in. In my opinion, it is as good as any fashion exhibition I’ve seen, and that included the Queen’s and Di’s dresses at Kensington Palace. Get along to it if you can.
