Up Close with the Collection: Fashion Perspectives

An exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the National Wool Museum’s Textile Collection. Led by our Curatorial Team, view select objects that tell the story of Australia’s wool, fibre and textile history.

From a fragment of cloth from MacArthur’s first clip to sample books from Geelong’s woollen mills, to knitwear and jackets and contemporary Ceremonial Cloaks by Wadawurrung artist Dr Deanne Gilson, the Museum’s collection features an extensive array of objects that explore Australia’s unique fashion perspective.

Presented as part of the PayPal Melbourne Fashion Festival’s Independent Programme.
