History

Notes

The history of this dress is unknown.

The Jacovides Collection was assembled by Chris Jacovides, a Sydney couturier and costume collector. The collection comprising 135 items of women's clothing and accessories from the period 1910 until the 1960s, represents the work of influential overseas and Australian designers. The National Trust of Australia (NSW) purchased the collection from Chris Jacovides in 1976 with the intention of establishing a museum of costume in Sydney. This did not eventuate and with permission from the museum, the National Trust was able to store the collection with the Powerhouse Museum from 1980 until purchased by the Museum in 1996. Previously catalogued in the Jacovides collection as No.13
