Antique fashion plates exhibition

March 6, 2010 at 11:01 pm 1 comment

For those of you in Brisbane, I’ve just heard about an exhibition of rare antique pochoir illustrations from early 20th Century Parisian fashion periodical Gazette du Bon Ton (which I think translates roughly as Journal of the Good Life – what a wonderful title!). The exhibition features plates circa 1913-25 and is on at the Antique Print & Map Company, corner Douglas and Dorsey Streets at Milton – open Wednesday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm. I haven’t seen it in person yet, but I have had a sneak peak on their website, which prompted squeals of delight – especially when I laid eyes on this gorgeous Jeanne Lanvin mother-and-daughter set. Swoon!
