2012 – 100 years of Canberra Fashion

Our Community Arts Project for 2012 is coming along well. We aim to present an exhibition in 2013 showcasing fashions in Canberra over the last 100 years – coinciding with Canberra’s 100th birthday celebrations.
The exhibition will feature photographs depicting each decade from the 1910s to the current day.

In terms 1 and 2, we have focussed on hair and makeup techniques. Term 3 will see us practising a few photography tricks, and our photoshoots will take place in term 4, and perhaps even next year as we prepare for the exhibition.

Members are excitedly collecting vintage outfits and objects from across the decades in readiness for the fashion shoots.

Stay tuned for some stunning photographs of vintage beauties!!
