History and use
This synthetic jersey shirtmaker dress from the late 1960s is part of a collection of garments designed and made by Brisbane fashion designer and couturier, Harvey Graham. With a career spanning from the 1950s to the 1980s, Graham worked first from a workroom in Stanley Street, South Brisbane before moving to a boutique in the Brisbane Arcade in 1963. His European-influenced couturier-style garments were variously described as ‘elegant’, ‘sophisticated’ and as ‘high fashion’. He later created a line of ready-to-wear clothing.
