Masterpiece’s from the Collection of the Musée Des Arts Décoratifs, Paris at the Art Gallery of South Australia.
You need to go!
I was very lucky to be invited to the official opening on Friday night.
A very elegant crowd awaited in the forecourt for the formalities.
There was even a street fashion photographer with all the essentials: pink hair, designer sports-inspired ensemble, camera.
Style continued at the reception
This event definitely needed a New Frock.
The Gallery thoughtfully provided a photo booth to record your outfit.
Both Melissa and I were in frocks we had made. She was wearing a floaty dress in a wonderful floral Rorschach silk print. Mine was a halter neck from embroidered chiffon with pleather paillettes. More on that in another post.
The exhibition itself was wonderful. Photography wasn’t allowed but this wasn’t well signposted so I did take two, before being asked to cease.
Christian Dior’s 1947 Bar Suit: self covered buttons. Ruth, this one was for you!
One of many beautiful gowns.

I loved all these gowns, and many more.
It is a wonderfully curated collection. I’ll be going again. I strongly encourage you to go too!
