These exhibitions are curated by Ann Dixon from her Bygone Days Historical Fashion Collection. Ann has offered to display vintage and historial clothes from her collection as a gift to the people of Wonthaggi and the Bass Coast.
The collection in it's entirety (over 1,500 pieces in all) has been offered to the Bass Coast Shire as a donation, which may be displayed in the future at a hoped-for Regional Gallery in Wonthaggi. These exhibitions are a taste of the collection.
Find out more about the proposed donation below.
