Every woman must have a Little Black Dress (LBD) which can be worn time and again, to any occasion, just change the accessories. Find out when this essential fashion item originated and see the change in the silhouette over the decades from the late 19th century to today.

Better than a fashion parade, these presentations are a rare opportunity to see examples of original clothing and accessories of historical significance and hear stories and anecdotes of the amazing women and men who wore these clothes. 

A Cavalcade presentation is a themed talk and includes examples from the collection with commentary. Items are carried amongst the audience, allowing a closer look at pieces from the collection.

The Cavalcade of History and Fashion is a museum with a collection of original historic clothing and accessories with provenance, dating from the 1700s preserving Australia’s social and fashion history.

Tickets are limited and sell quickly.  Please book and pay for your tickets and to reserve your seats in advance. Tickets are $45 each for non-members and can be paid for with cash in person or card over the phone by Wednesday 23 October.
