Costumes: Golden Age
Costumes from the Golden Age of Hollywood focussed on the film-making era from 1920s to 1960s through a collection of costumes, props and ephemera connected to the Hollywood’s most iconic stars, studios and designers. This exhibition was drawn solely from a private collection owned by Brisbane resident Nicholas Inglis.
Featured costumes worn by some of Hollywood’s most famous and enduring stars included Julie Andrews, Fred Astaire, Marlon Brando, Judy Garland, Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, Lana Turner and Barbra Streisand.
All of the costumes were exhibited in Australia for the very first time.
