A fashion exhibition will be running at Como Historic House and Garden between 1 April - 3 July 2011.
"Mannequin is the third in a popular and critically acclaimed series of fashion exhibitions staged by the National Trust at Como and part of the L’Oréal Melbourne Fashion Festival Cultural Program.
Mannequin is about a generation of professional models, such as Janice Wakely and Diane Masters who were photographed by the leading image makers of the time - Helmut Newton and Athol Shmith. These collaborations gave Melbourne fashion its own distinctive and influential style......
.......The exhibition will delve into the vast archive of photographs, newspaper and magazine spreads and the fashion that inspired them, held in the private collections of well-known career models."
