The Bowerbird and the Bride
Featuring the 'bowerbird', Marion Boyce's collection of bridal garments.
From the collection of acclaimed Australian costume designer Marion Boyce (Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries and The Dressmaker) and developed in conjunction with QUT, comes an exhibition of bridal gowns spanning the 1880s to the 1970s.
Boyce has collected garments since childhood. Her vast collection of fashion, accessories, and other curiosities has grown through years of astute buying from unexpected places around the world; along with donations from family, friends, and fans. The Bowerbird and the Bride brings each wedding ensemble to life through a series of vignettes filled with beauty, nostalgia, mischief and whimsy.
