In celebration of Adelaide Festival Centre’s 50th Anniversary, South Australian atelier Paolo Sebastian has designed a stunning commemorative dress to mark the occasion.
The one-of-a-kind couture gown by Paolo Sebastian designer Paul Vasileff, will be on display in the Festival Theatre foyer from 2 June '23 — Adelaide Festival Centre’s official 50th birthday.
As a lasting tribute, the gown will become a cherished addition to Adelaide Festival Centre’s Performing Arts Collection.
Established in 1979 by Premier Don Dunstan, the Performing Arts Collection aims to preserve, record and display the significant contributions artists have made on stage and behind-the-scenes, becoming one of the most important and comprehensive performing arts collections in Australia. With over 100,000 objects including artworks, textiles and archives dating back to 1858, the Performing Arts Collection is an invaluable resource for practitioners, researchers, and anyone with a keen passion for the arts.
