In conjunction with the exhibition 200 Years of Australia Fashion the NGV design store has collaborated with Melbourne fashion label Pageant to offer an exclusive capsule range.
Pageant was established in 2010 by RMIT University Fashion Design graduates Amanda Cumming and Kate Reynolds.
Melbourne–based, Pageant is a womenswear label that blends technically sophisticated fabrics in often unlikely textures and colourways with aesthetic nods to sportswear. Their designs are a mix of functional and utilitarian wardrobe staples that are aligned to movements within contemporary street and music culture.
In 2013–14 Pageant exhibited as a part of Melbourne Now at the National Gallery of Victoria and in 2015 the label was a finalist in the BT Emerging Designer Award and the winner of the Tiffany & Co National Designer Award.
