Last Sunday, I went to the Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries Costume Exhibition at Rippon Lea House and Gardens, where some of the series is filmed. I just adore 1920s fashions, so it was a real treat to go and see these costumes. The only down side was that I was supposed to go with my friend Sandra. Unfortunately, Sandra could not come because her Mum has unfortunately suffered an accident and Sandra has gone back home to care for her.
For the uninitiated, Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries is an Australian Broadcasting Commission TV series based on Kerry Greenwood's novels about a progressive female detective called Phryne Fisher, set in 1920's Melbourne. This sets the scene for some magnificent costuming, and this is the second exhibition of such costumes that has been held at Rippon Lea House.
I will now let the photos speak for themselves, interjecting only every now and then:
