Collette Dinnigan at the Powerhouse Museum

Sharing my photos from the Collette Dinnigan exhibition at Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum.

Dinnigan Gowns Dinnigan Dresses

The exhibition was beautifully staged and featured lovely gowns for tall, willowy women with tiny waists and no bust – people like Nicole Kidman, who was pictured in one of the gowns on the red carpet.

Ms Dinnigan has moved on from high fashion and has applied her design skills to a large number of other areas including girls wear, which is being sold by the German discount retailer Aldi, in an unexpected alliance.

Notice how muted the dresses appear in contrast to the background.

The girls wear at the Powerhouse was charming and traditional. It’s no surprise that when the designer’s clothes went on sale at Aldi they attracted a huge amount of interest, including, reportedly from shoppers who would not normally go shopping at a discount supermarket.
