The Dressmaker

Costume Exhibition

Sarah Snook as Gertrude 'Trudy' Pratt Photographer: Ben King Courtesy FilmArt Media, NFSA.

Presented in partnership with the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA) and FilmArt Media, The Dressmaker Costume Exhibition celebrates the artistry of the hit film’s sumptuous designs, as well as the transformational power of fashion. Audiences will be able to go ‘behind the seams’ of a diverse range of elegant vintage fashion, created by award-winning designer and exhibition curator Marion Boyce, and worn by Hollywood stars and Aussie acting talent, including Kate Winslet, Liam Hemsworth, Hugo Weaving, Sarah Snook, Judy Davis and Rebecca Gibney.


Directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse, produced by Sue Maslin and based on the novel by Rosalie Ham, the film’s vision was brought to life in 2015 by an extraordinary creative team of Australian talents. 


The tour will also stop in Winton, making Tamworth the exhibition’s only New South Wales venue.


Stay tuned for further exciting exhibition announcements.


This exhibition is supported by the National Collecting Institutions Touring and Outreach Program, an Australian Government program aiming to improve access to the national collections for all Australians.
