Velour @ Zeitgeist Becomes Form - German fashion photography 1945-1995



Last week The Australian Academy of Design and the Goethe Institute hosted a runway event to mark the "finissage" of the inspiring "Zeitgeist Becomes Form" exhibition of German fashion photography 1945-1995, curated by FC Gundlach.  Included were seminal works by sometimes Melbournian Helmut Newton, alongside Juergen Teller, and Willy Maywald to mention only a few.

The evening included a talk by 1950's & 60's Australian model Diane Masters, regaling the audience with tales of her work with close friend Helmut - and the occasional poodle, a runway show featuring vintage accessories by us here at Velour spanning the 40's-80's with hats by master milliner Paris Kyne, and a student runway show entitled "Fashion in Film" with pieces inspired by the films Ever After, Funny Face, Factory Girl, Pearl Harbour, The Wizard of Oz and Morrocco.

Head over to Style Melbourne for some snaps of Velour and Paris' contributions - and a wonderful video on the exhibition can be viewed below courtesy of ABC's Art nation. Enjoy!
