Did you know there’s a collection of performing arts
relics downstairs at His Majesty’s Theatre? This season,
we encourage you to explore your local museums, and
check out the much-anticipated Unveiled exhibition at
the WA Museum.
Here come the brides
The WA Museum presents an exquisite collection of more than 40
wedding outfits from London’s prestigious Victoria and Albert Museum.
Unveiled features masterpieces by Vera Wang, John Galliano and
Vivienne Westwood, presenting a timeline of wedding fashion over the
past 200 years, while providing an insight into the social and economic
conditions of the time. A highlight is the Norman Hartnell wedding dress
(above) with its 3.6m train. Worn by socialite Margaret Whigham in 1933,
it garnered so much public attention that traffic was blocked for hours.
