The Australian Dress Register is a collaborative, online project about dress pre 1945. This includes men’s, women’s and children’s clothing ranging from the special occasion to the everyday. Museums and private collectors are encouraged to research their garments and share the stories and photographs while the information is still available and within living memory. The register encourages people to consider their collections very broadly and share what they know about members of their community, what they wore and life in the past. This provides access to a world wide audience while keeping their garments in their relevant location. This booklet provides all the information and resources you will need to help you document the garments in your collection and submit the entries to the Australian Dress Register.
