Unravel layers of fashion to discover how NGV conservators prepare and display pieces on mannequins with historically perfect silhouettes.

NGV’s Senior Conservator Skye Firth, and Textiles Display Specialist Ellen Doyle share the process of getting just the right flare of the skirt, and the intriguing structures of underpinnings many people never have the chance to see.

This talk will be delivered online exclusively for NGV Members.
