Powerhouse Museum presents Clothes Encounters

The Powerhouse Museum presents Clothes Encounters an exhibition on view through 4 May 2014.

This exhibition features ten clothes encounters – stories exploring the clothing worn or created by a diverse range of Australians, from different eras and walks of life, in response to significant political, creative and social encounters in their lives.

Drawn from the Powerhouse Museum collection, this exhibition is a reminder that the fashion and dress choices we make reflect our aspirations and identity, and more broadly form part of a society’s cultural expression. Clothes can define a moment in time.
