Wow, 2018 kicked off with some incredible news as our film “A Victorian Silhouette” created for Sovereign Hill and the Gold Museum was named winner of the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival (VAMFF 2018).
Working closely with the talented Erin Santamaria, head of the costume department at Sovereign Hill, we helped turn her vision into this film.
The film is also screening from May 18 to November 4 at the Gold Museum for the exhibition of the same name. The exhibition draws on the Gold Museum’s incredible collection of original Victorian garments and accessories, shown alongside reproductions made by Sovereign Hill’s Costume Department to highlight the craftsmanship in recreating Victorian-era fashion.
It’s a fascinating look at what it was like to be a woman in the Victorian era in Australia (1837-1901) – I’m definitely glad that fashion has changed!
This is the 3 minute cut for the VAMFF, however there is a longer version on at the Gold Museum if you get the chance to get along
