Golden Age of Couture

A couple of weeks ago, two friends and I went to Bendigo to see The Golden Age of Couture exhibition at the Bendigo Art Gallery.  (Haven’t posted about it yet as things have been a bit crazy around here – and the computer slowed down again last month because we’d used our download limit – again!)  It runs until 22nd March and is well worth the trip to Bendigo if you are at all interested in fashion or textiles.   There are more than 100 dresses on display and most of these are on loan from the V&A……….there was quite a few that I would have liked to add to my wardrobe!!

The next week I visited the Jonhston Collection  with my mum and her friends.  Each year from November to February the house is decorated for Christmas – this year it was done by craftspeople of Bendigo and there was gorgeous bead work, quilts, felting and embroidery on show.  It was amazing!  Although this exhibition is now finished next year’s is being done by Geelong craftsters and begins on 4 November 2009.  You can also visit the house any time of the year to see all the beautiful antiques or other exhibitions.
