State Library of NSW Curator Margot Riley

State Library of NSW fashion expert and curator Margot Riley talked about fashion, photography and portraiture to complement the Flashback 160 years of Fashion photos display on at Orange City Library. Margot gave a fascinating insight into the world of fashion and photos and the history of photography using photos from the State Library’s collection. The Jean Shrimpton look inspired the Library team to try out some 60s glam as well. Thank you to everyone who came along.
