Margaret Murdoch, a Bundaberg local for many years, was a successful Australian fashion designer during the 1950s and a member of the famous Murdoch family. She studied fashion design in Paris during the late 30's and 40's and when war broke out, was interned for the duration of the campaign. On returning to Australia in the post-war years Margaret became a sought after designer of high end ladies clothing. She worked at Georges in Collins Street Melbourne which was renowned as one of the finest fashion boutiques in Australia. Curated by Jolene Watson from the personal archive of Margaret’s daughter, Patricia Meister, Margaret Murdoch: Fashion and Fascination is a celebration of Margaret’s untold story.
