Dressing Sydney: The Jewish Fashion Story EXTENDED UNTIL 31 JANUARY 2014
Where did the name TAROCASH come from? Who started up BLOCH ballet shoes and apparel? What famous people wore HAMMERMAN FURS?
These questions and more are answered in a new exhibition to celebrate the Museum’s 20th Anniversary Dressing Sydney: The Jewish Fashion Story which gives Sydney a look into the Schmatte trade (an affectionate Yiddish term for rags or clothing). With over 100 contributors, the exhibition will be brought to life through recollections, rare photographs, garments and accessories.
