You are what you eat, or so the saying goes. Perhaps you are what you wear as well? That's one of the ideas behind Dress Code, which explores the impact that fashion has on culture, gender and identity — and whether the clothes we don express our inner selves, or shape them.

Displaying at the Museum of Brisbane between Saturday, November 3, 2018 and Monday, January 28, 2019, the sartorially focused showcase highlights the work of five artists, all of whom navigate the fields of art, design, craft and fashion to examine the making, wearing and purchasing of clothing in the Asia Pacific region. A certain highlight is a section dedicated to Gerwyn Davies, with his signature pieces — combining both photography and costume-making — a huge feature.

An installation by contemporary artist Lisa Hilli, plus newly commissioned pieces by Hannah Gartside, Emily McGuire and Grace Lillian Lee, are all also on offer.

Entry to the exhibition is free, with Dress Code open every day of the week — other than Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day — during its three-month run.
