2012 (English)In: Dressing Sydney: The Jewish Fashion Story / [ed] Roslyn Sugarman, Sydney: Sydney Jewish Museum , 2012, 91-147 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Dressing Sydney: the Jewish fashion story is a welcome addition to the developing field of Australian fashion scholarship. Based on written sources and over 150 hours of oral history interviews with 100 informants, it brings to light the impact of Jewish people on the post-1945 Australian garment and fashion industry. It consists of two essays written by curator Roslyn Sugarman and fashion scholar Peter McNeil and is generously illustrated with 87 images. These essays focus on the contribution of Sydney's immigrant Jewish community to the success of the rag trade from the 1930s to the 1980s. The book was published concurrently with an exhibition of the same name curated by Sugarman at the Sydney Jewish Museum from October 2012 to December 2013.
