Need a new dress?

We know you guys like hitting up a fashion exhibition or two. And this exhibit is one we think you’ll especially love. Why?

Because you can actually shop the displays.

This year at the fourth annual Sydney Fair, you’ll be able to do just that. The fair will host the The Little Black Dress exhibit, a vintage fashion showcase featuring works of Ceil Chapman, Dior, Balenciaga and Gaultier among others. And when you fall in love with what you see, you’ll be able to take it home with you. It's that easy.

If that line-up of designers doesn't get you excited enough, get this. Coco Chanel’s 1926 LBD will be making a star appearance.

I repeat, the Coco Chanel LBD.

Unfortunately it won’t be available for purchase but seeing it IRL will suffice.

You can purchase tickets to the fair online now.
