Handbags Through the Ages SYD

AUSTRALIA Apr ’08 Was back to Sydney for a few days before flying back to KL. It so happened the Handbags Through the Ages exhibition was going on throughout the month of April at the Queen Victoria Building (QVB) here.

Since neu loves bags – of any size & shape – thought it’ll be good to visit and take some pictures of those handbags on exhibit which ranged from the vintage era of 1760 to today’s modern creations. The exhibition also showcased over 100+ handbags from the Darnell Collection (AU).

From QVB Exhibition info
The earliest handbag on display is from America and believed to have been
stitched by a young woman to carry her handkerchief in 1760. Reflecting the
richness of the 1920s is an array of fine metal mesh bags with asymmetrical
patterns, whilst the large and sturdy handbags of the 1950s pay tribute to a
time when women began carrying everything from make-up to car keys.

Here are some of my fave ones from the exhibition…
