I am beyond excited to be visiting Adelaide while the Fashion Icons exhibition is showing. This exhibition is exclusively showing at the Art Gallery of South Australia.
Fashion Icons paints a unique picture of Parisian style within the context of contemporary fashion design since 1947 when the couturier Christian Dior re-launched haute couture with his New Look. From that time fashion design blossomed with the lavish splendour of the 1950s, the futurist dynamism of the 1960s, the inspired emancipation of the 1970s, the unbridled excess of the 1980s, and the pure minimalism of the 1990s, all inspiring today’s composite portrait of the 21st century.
Over 90 emblematic haute couture garments created by the world’s leading fashion designers will be drawn from the most comprehensive collection of French fashion in the world, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs and curated by the museum’s 20th and 21st Centuries Fashion and Textile Collection Chief Curator, Pamela Golbin.
Thanks to the Art Gallery of South Australia, we have two tickets to this fabulous exhibition to giveaway at our Adelaide event on 15 November! To hear how to win you must be subscribed to our Adelaide newsletter. Sign up here.

The unconventional and playfully irreverent designs of Jean Paul Gaultier are celebrated in the first international exhibition dedicated to this groundbreaking French couturier.

Dress, Memory is a charming coming-of-age memoir in which every dress tells a story.
As we grow older, how do we know what to let go of and what to keep?
Lorelei started collecting dresses in her twenties and found that every time she wore one it became more significant to her. From falling in love for the first time to playing in a band, from starting a career to moving overseas, every dress soon had a memory stitched into it, and she became as attached to each one as if they were the events and people themselves.
But what happens when the wardrobe gets full? Should you let go of the dresses you’ve outgrown, or try to hold on to them forever?
Dress, Memory is about a decade in dresses. Perceptive and poignant, humorous and heartwarming, it’s the story of growing up and growing into yourself. It’s about trying things on until you find the perfect fit.

Magic in the Moonlight passes up for grabs
Set in the 1920s in the idyllic south of France, Woody Allen’s Magic in the Moonlight is an enchanting romantic comedy starring Colin Firth and Emma Stone. The film follows a master illusionist (Firth) who travels to the opulent French Riviera where he is tasked with exposing an alluring young clairvoyant (Stone) as a fraud. Charming, funny and featuring terrific performances, Magic in the Moonlight delves into the very heart of our belief in something more, with a twist you won’t see coming.
Thanks to entertainment one, earlybird shoppers at Round She Goes Markets on Saturday 26 July in Sydney, Sunday 3 August in Melbourne and Saturday 23 August in Adelaide, will receive a FREE 2for1 pass to see Magic in the Moonlight!
