Support the Easton Pearson Archive

Generously gifted to Museum of Brisbane by Dr Paul Eliadis in 2017, the Easton Pearson Archive, comprising of more than 3,300 signature garments is the largest textile collection from a single Australian fashion house held by a museum.

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 Dress Circle

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.
