The Go-gettes Strike a Pose at the front of the Liverpool Museum

 

Late last year Vintage Allsorts was approached to work with the Liverpool Museum on an event to help them celebrate a touring exhibition of Australian fashion photography.The exhibition was called Strike- A- Pose and it celebrated the emerging local fashion industry from the 1960′s and 70′s.

The 89 photographs were taken by Australian Government photographers during a time of great cultural and social change.The collection showcases both posed fashion advertising shots and spontaneously captured street culture images. They capture the personality , trends and influences of those decades and were used to promote the fashion industry and the lifestyle of Australia during that time.

Jo Morris from Liverpool Council wanted our help to create an event that would bring the quirky , fun fashions to life in an interactive , entertaining and memorable way. So we created a roving fashion parade and installation that featured original and authentic vintage 1960′s – 70′s fashion garments. All the clothing was provided by the Sydney Antique Centre’s Vintage Fashion Emporium collection.

The models in the parade were the wonderful Go-gettes. Sydney’s incredible 60′s Go-Go dancing troupe led by the amazingly talented Tasia. Throughout the day the Go-gettes showcased a great variety of fashion styles, from long printed chiffon dresses to sexy brocade minis. Each new ensemble was greeted with a delighted sigh from the crowd.

The Go-gettes performed a fabulous high energy routine and invited the crowd to join in a fun dance lesson which was a great interactive crowd experience and allowed everyone to really connect with the energy of the event. The day was a great success and provided a memorable experience for all who attended.
