The Cavalcade of History and Fashion is a collection of historic gowns and accessories. The collection, dating from the late 1700s, has been used by its custodians, a volunteer not-for-profit community group, to share Australia’s social and fashion history for over 50 years. We share this history with community audiences at historical, educational and public charitable events and exhibitions in city and regional areas.


Cavalcade’s NEW publication on Luxury & Leisure features fashions from the Cavalcade Collection from 1895, late in the Victorian era, up to 1965, the middle of the Swinging Sixties. The book features professional photographs by Timeline Photography as well as the social and personal history of gowns featured in the current Luxury & Leisure Parade.
