What's On

Love, Desire and Riches: The Fashion of Weddings

An exhibition that examines the intersection between film, historic fashion and the social narratives of weddings

Love, Desire and Riches will help you to discover that romance is never without drama, whether seen through great moments in literature and film or the romances of ordinary people from our own fair city.

The exhibition will also feature dresses from world famous fashion houses, such as Valentino, Maticevski and Akira, as well as rarely seen celebrity wedding gowns from Australia and abroad.

A vast collection of dresses from the 18th to 21st centuries will also be yours to enjoy.
