About the exhibition

From 1950s Dungatar to 2019 Canberra, the original costumes from the hit film The Dressmaker are on display at the NFSA.

The exhibition, designed by Marion Boyce, features a spectacular range of haute couture worn by the film’s stars and will be on show at the NFSA until 18 August.

The Dressmaker Costume Exhibition celebrates the artistry of the 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 worn by Hollywood stars and home-grown acting talents including Kate Winslet, Liam Hemsworth, Hugo Weaving, Sarah Snook, Judy Davis, Rebecca Gibney and more.

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

Award-winning designer, exhibition curator and vintage specialist Marion Boyce has worked across film and television in Australia and overseas. She was nominated for an Emmy and Costume Designers Guild Award for The Starter Wife (2007), as well as winning the AACTA Award for Best Costume Design in Television for Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries (2013). The Dressmaker also earned Boyce multiple awards including Best Costume Design at the 2015 AACTA Awards.

Developed and presented in association with Film Art Media.
