About The Cavalcade of
History and Fashion Inc
The Cavalcade of History and Fashion is a volunteer, not-for-profit community group whose custodians collect, preserve and display a collection of historic fashion dating from the late 1700s. The collection has been amassed over the last 60 years and consists of over 18,000 items including men’s, women’s and children’s clothing and accessories. All items are original and have been donated. Where possible the history of the original wearer has also been collected and the item is named after its wearer. Through a “Museum without Walls” philosophy, the collection brings Australia’s social and fashion history to life through presentations, displays and exhibitions.
