This summer the iconic fashion house returns to our radar in a big way with the introduction of a digital archive and the launch of a two-year national tour that will kick off at Melbourne’s RMIT early 2021.
Pattern and Print: Easton Pearson Archive will showcase the daring design, technical innovations, bespoke fabrics, and bold prints, Easton Pearson became known for. Each garment is an exquisite design object, appealing to our sense of sight, sound and touch through a remarkable variety of colours, shapes, fabric and embellishments.
An archive of this scale requires continuous conservation and specialist expertise. The Easton Pearson Archive donor program is an opportunity to help keep the legacy of the Archive alive for generations to come.
The support of the Dress Circle is critical to the Museum’s efforts to share Pamela Easton and Lydia Pearson’s extraordinary legacy with visitors from across the nation and the world now, and into the future.
For fashion philanthropists who are looking to leave their own special mark on the collection, there is an invitation to join The Dress Circle.
This year individuals or friends and family groups can adopt one of 18 mannequins in the touring exhibition, with your name/s proudly displayed on the mannequin label.
This one-time donation of $1000 will also unlock highly exclusive privileges including a private curator’s tour of the archive, exclusive events and much more.
Fashion lovers who are looking to help keep the legacy of art and fashion alive are welcome to join The Loop.
With a donation of $50, supporters will be able to access insider information on the archive and a limited-edition Easton Pearson Archive art print to keep.
