The White Wedding Dress exhibition at Bendigo Art Gallery is one of this years MUST SEE exhibitions.
Beginning in the nineteenth century, the exhibition traces the development of the fashionable white wedding dress and its treatment by key fashion designers. It considers the effect of the increasing media focus on wedding fashions and the excitement generated by society and celebrity weddings.
The exhibition comprises over more than 40 wedding outfits, including those of bridegrooms, alongside a selection of accessories including wreaths, veils, hats, shoes, corsetry and lingerie. Reproductions of contextual material, such as wedding photographs, will be shown alongside exhibits to assist in telling the story of the wearer.
Whether you’re a bride planning your wedding, a fashion lover or just someone who appreciates great design, then this exhibition really is worth a visit.
