Coming into Fashion

A fashion photography exhibition is coming to The Arts Centre showcasing 100 years of stunning images from the likes of famed photographers Mario Testino and Helmut Newton.

The photography and vintage couture exhibition showcases all the glorious aspects of fashion photography you know and love – bold colours, creative combinations and perfectly placed models – and is, in our humble opinion, one of the most exciting things to grace our golden shores.

The exhibition also includes a selection of vintage couture fashion from The Darnell Collection – Australia’s largest private collection of fashion from the late 1700s to the 20th century. The collection’s custodian, author and fashion historian Charlotte Smith, has selected the finest and most iconic pieces.

Throughout the three months it’s showing at The Arts Centre, Coming into Fashion will screen a collection of fashion films and documentaries and host workshops and casual chats with people who know things.

One such chat will take place with fashion blogger royalty Amanda Shadforth, who you may or may not know as Oracle Fox. She’s the chicest of chic and she can be sitting in front of you on November 25th to share her (Ghandi-like) thoughts on the future of fashion.

In January, Fashion Forum will see international industry leaders come together to exchange ideas and experiences of the fashion variety, the likes of which us mere mortals can never imagine.

Oh, FYI Condé Nast is the media company responsible for publications like Vogue, Vanity Fair, Glamour, Brides, Self, GQ, GQ Style, The New Yorker and probably your sky-high credit card debt.

Style may never go out of fashion, but this show is for a limited time only so get it while it’s hot at The Arts Centre from November 25th to February 18th.

LOCATION: The Arts Centre, 135 Bundall Rd, Bundall
HOURS: Open daily from 10am to 5pm
