So was delighted when Sue pointed out the there is an exhibition of her costumes by Marion Boyce being shown at Ripponlea. So with a lot of to and fro-ing to get a date Sue, Di, Betty and I went there today.

But the beauty of it all was Marion Boyce's designs, dressmaking and collections.
While there is a lot of information about the huge numbers of films she has done, there is not much about her (interview on the Behind the Scenes) but we all agreed we loved the workroom where there was the beginnings of dresses, fabric left from the costumes ribbons buttons beads etc.
Much of which came from her own collection of fabrics and jewellery she has collected over the years. (she's not that old!!)
They had some coats to dress up in in the foyer and while we are no Essie Davis it was fun!
