On a beautiful sunny Melbourne Spring day, 28 Marcellin Past & Present Mums, their friends and relatives gathered at the National Gallery of Victoria.
We were met by an NGV guide who presented an interesting and informative talk on Dior, the House of Dior, the actual exhibition and the many designers who have been involved. We learnt of the history of Dior and how his role was influential in those times.
We then visited the actual exhibition which showcases hundreds of outfits, shoes, hats, perfume bottles and many videos of catwalk shows over the years.
It was fascinating to see the actual clothes in situ and then to see them being modelled.
The NGV has done a wonderful job of presenting the clothes in a suitable setting with a two storey section and sweeping staircase as well as showing areas where the patrons could see how the clothes were put together.
There is a huge array of items and our guests were fascinated by the beautiful lines of the clothes and we all wish we could dress like that now!
Thank you to all of those who came along on the day. It was a wonderful opportunity for Mums from all eras to meet others, catch up with old friends and to be able to share such a great exhibition.
Keep an eye out for future Past and Present Mum's events....
