Pep, Personality and Vitality

If you can get to Sydney - go and see the EXPOSED exhibition - the Story of Swimwear at the National Maritime Museum, Darling Harbour. Actually, it's a travelling exhibition - coming to a town near you!  It closes 23rd October, 2009. Here are some photos.... it's a brilliant exhibition ....... I'm not going to blah on about each photo ... except for a couple .....

Here is Annette Kellerman's Book - it's just too good!
She writes that her perfect figure is due to her PEP, PERSONALITY AND VITALITY ..... Love it!
Here are a couple of ladies being arrested in the 1920s for wearing their swimsuits in public ....risque!
The exhibition is a Textiles Teacher's dream - great info on design, fibres, fabrics and society.......
Did your mum wear these????
It was also great to come across and artist working with the exhibition ..... Jennie Pry ..... she was sketching swimsuits .... her work is fabulous ...... what a treat!
And finally, I'd like to finish with this suit - it's my favourite - from Jet Swimwear .....Cool lines, a denim look with a detailed print - love it!


  1. Thank you for sharing that. I just wish I could really go.

  2. Looks like a fun exhibition - I will have to watch out to see if it comes to perth.

  3. I live in Sydney and didn't know this was on. Should pop in before the school holidays end.


Please leave a comment .... thankyou!
