History of menswear

Australian Dress Register

The Australian Dress Register is a collaborative, online project about dress with Australian provenance. It includes men's, women's and children's clothing ranging from the special occasion to the everyday. Museums and private collectors are encouraged to research their garments and share the stories and photographs while the information is still available and within living memory. The Register encourages people to consider their collections very broadly and share what they know about members of their community, what they wore and life in the past.
