Australian Dress Register
The Australian Dress Register is an online resource which contains detailed information about particular items of clothing. The garments range from Wedding and ball gowns to day wear, uniforms, nightclothes, children's clothes and fancy dress costumes. Entries contains details about manufacture and hand sewing techniques, place of origin and the history and use of each garment.
The Australian Dress Register is a collaborative, online project about dress in New South Wales pre 1945. This includes men's, women's and children's clothing ranging from the special occasion to the everyday. Museums and private collectors are encouraged to research their garments and share the stories and photographs while the information is still available and within living memory. The Register encourages people to consider their collections very broadly and share what they know about members of their community, what they wore and life in the past. This provides access to a world wide audience while keeping their garments in their relevant location.
