The Swinging 60s was an era of prosperity and rebellion for the young who developed a new and very different interest in fashion, music and nightclubs. Fashion became fun, designed by the young for the young and broke away from the exclusivity of haute couture.

Cavalcade’s Presentation on the Swinging 60s will feature a selection of gowns from this era – miniskirts, cocktail frocks, the little black dress, paper dresses, beachwear, underwear and nightwear. Hear the fascinating stories of the time and the women who wore these gowns.

• Relive the fun and rebellious days of the sixties.
•Wonder at how short the skirts really were.
• Laugh at some of the antics the young people got up to.
• Enjoy a trip down memory lane.

A Cavalcade presentation is a themed talk and includes examples from the collection with commentary. Items are carried amongst the audience, allowing a closer look at pieces from the collection. The Cavalcade of History and Fashion is an organisation with a collection of original historic gowns and accessories with provenance, dating from the 1700s preserving Australia’s social and fashion history.
