Take a step back to the 1920s

From the Maitland Mercury report:
Titled Art Deco, the latest Australian Museum of Clothing and Textiles exhibition is a glamorous nod to the fashion’s foray into the modern era.
“We can’t believe we’ve got so many pieces from the 1920s, it’s just incredible,” co-curator Stephanie Rogers said.
“The pieces have been donated to AMCAT over the years and some of them are very fragile, so we’ve had to be extremely careful with them, but we’re just so pleased we got so many beautiful evening gowns.”
Ms Rogers said the 1920s was a time when women also eschewed more restrictive fashions for comfortable wear.
Art Deco is on show at the museum at Maitland Gaol until December.
