Launch of 'The Australian Women's Weekly Fashion: The First Fifty Years'

 The night @the National Library

It was amazing to veiw some of Charlotte Smith's extensive private collection which now has over 8,000 pieces. I mean, where would you store them? We spend the night rubbing shoulders with Deborah Thomas, Kristie Clements and the stylish from Canberra. We were treated to a fashion parade through the decades from Charlottes collection, some of these styles were so classic and you could still wear them today and others were deffinatley from the 70's. It's the evolution of fashion, it made me think about the designers process and how they continuosly reinvent styles that have been around for decades.
