Glitz and glamour at the Museum of Clothing

From the Maitland Mercury report:
When it comes to history Lani Furner wears her heart on her sleeve.
As a staunch devotee of the pin-up culture, Mrs Furner loves little more than adorning herself in the glamour of years gone by.
“I’m very attracted to the glamour of the 1950s and ’60s and also the shape of the garments,” she said.
“I love the hourglass shape and I think it’s very flattering on pretty much any body shape, but generally there are also stories behind the garments which I also love.”
The Phoenix Park woman will model a collection of garments from her favourite fashion era as part of The Museum of Clothing’s latest offering.
Titled Glitz & Glamour, the collection features a range of garments donated from people across the Hunter.
