Between 1975 and 1994 two friends - artist, designer and gay activist David McDiarmid and acclaimed fashion designer Linda Jackson - collaborated on Linda Jackson’s designs for Jenny Kee’s Flamingo Park boutique, in Sydney, and later Linda’s ‘Bush Couture’ label. Curated by cultural historian Dr Sally Gray, the exhibition will trace the ideas and working methods that inspired this fashion collaboration.​
