LA TROBE’S UNIFORM

‘Extravagance, Tradition and Power’ : Charles La Trobe’s Uniform

Guest Speaker: Megan Anderson (2019 La Trobe Society Fellow at State Library Victoria)

Megan Anderson is Costume Production Assistant at Sovereign Hill, a position which involves researching and producing historically accurate reproduction clothing subsequently used as interpretive and educational tools within the living history museum.

This presentation will outline the history of La Trobe’s official uniform, and the actual tailoring of this splendid attire which Megan is in the process of constructing.

Megan has meticulously researched the design of La Trobe’s uniform and is hand making a replica. She will bring a tailor’s dummy with the part-finished uniform and talk about her research, then show us the intricate construction of the replica uniform. It promises to be a very illuminating presentation and describe tailoring uniforms in the 19th century.

La Trobe Society Talk for Members and Friends – all welcome.

Includes refreshments. Bookings essential by Friday 18 June.
