RECALLING THE GLAMOUR with Lesley Sharon Rosenthal

Thursday 18 Feb 2016, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM

Collins Street Melbourne was Australia’s first fashion thoroughfare.  A trip to town and the Paris-end of town was greatly anticipated by generations. Writer and filmmaker, Lesley Sharon Rosenthal, invites us to recall the glamour of times gone by when fashionable Collins Street was famous for its beautiful boutiques and magnificent department stores.

LESLEY SHARON ROSENTHAL is a writer and filmmaker who loves fashion and history. Her feature films Chapel of Chic (2008) about Chapel Street’s evolvement into unique world-famous fashion street and Boutique Magnifique, (2010) documenting Collins Street's history and style through the focus of its once famous high-end boutiques and department stores, depict Melbourne as a stylish city. Lesley has also written SCHMATTES: Stories of Fabulous Frocks, Funky Fashion and Flinders Lane (2005) a book that features stories of Melbourne’s colourful rag trader history.
