Dressing Sydney: The Jewish Fashion Story
OCTOBER 2012 - 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 were answered in an exhibition to celebrate the Museum’s 20th Anniversary Dressing Sydney: The Jewish Fashion Story which gave Sydney a look into the Schmatte trade (an affectionate Yiddish term for rags or clothing). With over 100 contributors, the exhibition was brought to life through recollections, rare photographs, garments and accessories.
