The costumes from the movie The Dressmaker are on display at the National Trust’s Ayres House in Adelaide, and I visited it last week.
If you’ve seen the movie no doubt you loved the fabulous costumes, and there are more than 50 on show, all thoughtfully displayed. The exhibition includes a short documentary on making the costumes and some interviews. It was fascinating to hear about choosing the movie’s colour palette, and collaborating to make sure the costumes, furniture, sets and scenery all agreed colour-wise.
Mum and I agreed it was a very enjoyable exhibition, and it made us want to go and watch the movie again. My five year old girl liked the Ayres house staircase the best!
The exhibition runs until December 11th -do get along and see it if you can.
