with The Cavalcade of History and Fashion

Be captivated by clothing, toys and other items worn or used by boys and girls for parties and play in bygone eras. Children were dressed as miniature replicas of adults and more regarded as an accessory than a child. See the evolution of children’s clothing as they became more comfortable and allowed greater freedom of movement, so children could be children.

The Cavalcade of History and Fashion is an award-winning collection of historic gowns and accessories. Renowned for collecting, preserving and exhibiting artifacts that tell the story of the wearer. These exhibited artifacts not only relate the heritage and culture of Australia but also hold great historic worth.
