Drape-Classical Mode to Contempory Dress

Yesterday, I travelled to Melbourne to attend the above exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria. It was wonderful to see these dresses and marvel at the designer's mastery of draping.
The exhibition is on until approx Mid June.
Gowns on display were by designers such as Marc Bohan (Christian Dior), Rei Kawakubo (Comme Des Garcons), Gianni Versace, Madeleine Vionnet, Yohji Yamamoto, Christian Dior, Vivenne Westwood - just to name a few. My favourite was an English gown dated to 1913 in the style of Poiret - just beautiful.
