Fashionistas and cinephiles mingled amongst iconic costumes from Tinseltown’s most famous era at the launch of Museum of Brisbane’s latest exhibition, Costumes from the Golden Age of Hollywood.

The world-first exhibition showcases the extraordinary private collection of Nicholas Inglis, who has spent the last two decades acquiring hundreds of motion picture costumes worn by the likes of Judy Garland, Grace Kelly and Fred Astaire.

A carefully curated selection of nearly 70 costumes, dozens of accessories and props and more than 100 photographs and sketches from the 1920s to 1960s will be on show until 24 May 2015.
