  1. Prue Acton Ski Suit for Australian Team at Innsbruck Winter Olympics
    1975

    Thredbo Historical Society and Ski Museum

    “Australia’s ‘golden girl of fashion’ Prue Acton became famous because her bold designs reflected the moods of her times, the 1960s to 1980s.  Amongst Ms Acton’s many achievements was the design of uniforms for every Australian Summer and Winter Olympic contingent between 1976 and 1988 – for which she won international accolades.  Ms Acton sought to divert attention from green towards gold (with black or navy blue) as the recommended national palette, but the attempt finally failed with ... more

  2. Qantas Pucci Uniform
    1974 - 1987

    Qantas Heritage Collection

    The Qantas Pucci uniform symbolises the freedom and optimism of the mid 1970s. Designed during the Whitlam era, when Australia was asserting itself on the international stage, and during the social upheavals of the mid-late twentieth century, the uniform broke with tradition. Its feather pattern and bright colours were chosen to represent freedom, youth, 'flower power' and Australian topography. The absence of a hat was a deliberate break from past practices - a sign that the formalities of yester-year were being abandoned. The 'Pucci' represents important developments in the airline industry, as it ... more

  3. Qantas uniform designed by senior steward Stewart Baker
    1973 - 1987

    Qantas Heritage Collection

    The spectacularly colourful uniform worn by Qantas Flight Service Directors from 1973 - 1987 symbolised the optimistic mood prevalent in Australia as it forged an identity independent of its colonial past. The vibrant burnt orange of the blazer and yellow shirt alluded to the bright Australian sunlight and desert landscapes, thereby breaking with the tradition for male cabin crew to wear sombre uniforms reminiscent of British shipping stewards. The post-war baby boomer generation enjoyed unprecedented influence throughout the western world and Qantas was keen to promote a modern, youthful image that resonated with this ... more

    Port Macquarie Historical Society

It is believed that her large wardrobe including underwear items were dispersed to members of ... more

  5. Queensland Police Commissioner's Dress Tunic
    1927 - 1943

    Queensland Police Museum

    The Queensland Police Commissioner's tunic manufactured between 1927 and 1943 represents an important era in the history of the Queensland Police. The owner of this tunic is most likely to have been Cecil James Carroll, Commissioner of Police between 1934 and 1949. The braided decorations, trimmings and the wool fabric all indicate this tunic was an elaborate garment, worn by someone of a high rank and mostly for ceremonial purposes. It was manufactured by an experienced tailor in the Brisbane City who created a military-style uniform ... more

    1969 - 1970

    Queensland Police Museum

Bauer and Bjelke-Petersen had to work closely because the Premier was also the Minister in charge of Police. In Brisbane and other Queeensland cities, like many parts of the world, street demonstrations were passionate and often unruly. The demonstrators marched without permits, or if ... more

    1936 - 1950

    Queensland Police Museum

The owner of the garment is unknown, however, whoever wore this tunic must have been a male Inspector or Sub-Inspector who wore the uniform for ceremonial purposes. The hip-length, black tunic is primarily made from black-dyed wool. It is both a decorative item consisting of intricate black ... more
