ADFAS: Flappers, Speedos and the New Look: Fashion in Australia in the 1920s, 30s and 40s

Michael Hoskins Creative Arts Centre The Armidale School, 89 Douglas Street, ARMIDALE, NSW

In the 1920s there was no Australian style in women’s dress.  In 1921 David Jones advertised modestly priced reproductions and adaptations of Paris fashions.

VENUE:

ADFAS: Turner – The Explorer

Michael Hoskins Creative Arts Centre The Armidale School, 89 Douglas Street, ARMIDALE, NSW
