Dresses by Gwen Gillam
Dresses by Gwen Gillam
Gwen Gillam was the leading dress designer in Queensland during the 1950s and 1960s. She was regarded as "the best" by her country and city clientele, as her garments reflected European design and were initially made from exclusive imported fabrics. Bringing together garments from the Queensland Museum archives as well as items donated by Gillam's family, friends and clients, this exhibition sheds light on the life and work of this unique Queensland trailblazer.
