Modern Love Exhibition

20140102-201229.jpg I made a little day trip on Monday to see the Modern Love; Fashion Visionaries from the FIDM Museum LA Exhibition that’s currently running at the Bendigo Art Gallery. It’s an amazing collection from designers from the last 40 years who have made a lasting impression in fashion.

20140102-201930.jpg Designers featured in the exhibition include Chanel, Versace, Carolina Herrera, Vivienne Westwood, YSL and even Toni Maticevski who is the only Aussie to be featured.

20140102-202134.jpg I love the fact that there were gorgeous couture gowns interspersed with t-shirts and funky sweaters from Japanese designers. It really showed how eclectic fashion has become in our modern lives.

20140102-202444.jpg These are just a selection of my favourite pieces. As you can imagine with more than 60 works in total I was in heaven snapping away at them all.

20140102-202845.jpg I had a fun day out and was happy to bust out my new Cocolatte black floral dress that I picked up in the Boxing Day sales for $15 – such a bargain! I teamed it with a Kmart clutch that was $9 and Lovisa bangles for $7. All that and the shoes and my outfit cost less than $50!! I also love that I was walking amongst some truly beautiful, priceless gowns in my fabulous bargain outfit. 😃

The Modern Love exhibition runs until the 2nd of February and I highly recommend it if you have the chance. You can make a day of it like I did and grab a bite to eat and a well deserved cider for lunch at the Wine Bank.
