Krystyna Campbell-Pretty Fashion Gift

The Krystyna Campbell-Pretty Fashion Gift is a microcosm of the world of haute couture and Parisian fashion from the late nineteenth century to the twenty-first century.


Featuring designers from Charles Frederick Worth, the celebrated ‘father of haute couture’, to the iconoclastic Alexander McQueen, the exhibition includes over 200 garments and archive works from the extensive fashion research collection comprising hundreds of designers’ sketches; workbooks; photographs; and fashion magazines, journals and periodicals from the early nineteenth century onwards.


Krystyna Campbell-Pretty’s support has introduced into the NGV Collection designers such as Elsa Schiaparelli, Boué Soeurs, Christian Lacroix, Madeleine Vionnet, and Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel’s ‘little black dress’.


Now showing at NGV International until 14 July.
Free admission.
