Exhibition to trace the story of swimwear
Published: June 4, 2009
The exhibition draws on the museum’s extensive collection of historical swimwear, from the early 1900’s when Annette Kellermen bucked the trend of heavy knitted garments, the launch of Speedo in 1912 , the development of the bikini in all its permutations to today’s highly technical developments.
Contemporary Australian brands including Speedo, Zimmermann, Seafolly, Tigerlily and aussieBum show creative costumes recalling the Annette Kellerman era in a modern context.
“Exposed! The story of swimwear” will also tour to WA, SA, Queensland, Wagga Wagga and Newcastle.
