History of Australian Fashion by Henry Talbot

with No Comments

Octavia Shoes & Fashion are always keeping a look out for all things design. We heard the National Art Gallery of     Victoria was showing Australian Fashion History we could not resist sharing this with you.

The Iconic photographs captured by  Henry Talbot (friend of Helmut Newton) represent a significant chapter in Australian fashion photography history, capturing key moments of fashion evolution in Australia. At Octavia Shoes & Fashion this is a wonderful exhibition to reflect on as ‘Classic Style’ is our primary template.

Henry Talbot captured the essence of the youth movement that shook Australia, forever changing the fashion scene.
