Summary

Online exhibition including images and interpretive text describing Australian fashions at the time of Federation. The fashions worn by the men, women and children who attended the celebrations marking the Federation of Australia were transitory styles between the stiff, formal lines of late-Victorian fashions and the looser, more comfortable Edwardian clothing. While men's clothing during the period 1890-1910 continued to be quite conservative, women's clothing broke free of late-Victorian constraints.
