DRESS DETECTIVE Miss Fisher’s Wardrobe - Kate Strasdin

Event date: 7/13/2020 Export event

The phenomenal success of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries has a great deal to do with the aesthetic of the TV show – 1920s Melbourne and a glamourous protagonist! This lecture looks at the dress in the 1920s, the designers who were influencing the style and the developments that were changing the way people thought about clothes. It is also a look behind the scenes, creating Phryne Fisher’s world and the flapper style so synonymous with the decade. It was a period that began to embrace sportswear, leisurewear, shortened hems as well as outrageous parties. It also looks at menswear of the period and the changes that were beginning to take place within the masculine wardrobe.

Kate has worked with objects of dress and textiles in museums for almost twenty years in curatorial positions. She is Assistant Curator
at the Fashion and Textile Museum in Totnes, Devon. Kate is also a Senior Lecturer at Falmouth University, teaching history and contextual studies to fashion and textile students.
