Caring for the collection

These garments are being prepared for display by our textile conservator A detail from one of the Gwen Gillam garments being prepared for displayOur specialist conservators have been working to care for the Gwen Gillam garments from our collection and prepare them for display.

From prepping the mannequins to providing careful, hand-stiched repairs or coordinating specialist dry-cleaning, our team has been working hard to bring Gwen Gillam's legacy to life.

The exhibition features garments from Queensland Museum's collection, as well as items loaned by Gwen Gillam's former clients, her friends and family.
