To mark the 200th anniversary of her passing, Dressing Australia Museum of Costume has designed a rare and wonderful exhibition bringing Jane Austen to life in original fashion of the era. Be Persuaded follows Austen’s life - and the unforgettable characters she created - from growing up in the 18th Century into the era most associated with her - the Regency era at the beginning of the 19th Century. Be Persuaded features rare fashion, accessories and ephemera from the 18th Century when Austen was born, through to the 1840s.
