That girl was me, and this is my story.
Marion Boyce, is best known for her costume work on Australia's treasured crime series Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, set in 1920s Melbourne. Hollywood also beckoned Marion's costume design skills for the award-winning movie The Dressmaker, set in 1950s Australia. Marion Boyce won an AACTA award for her work on Series 2 of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, and Best Costume Design for the feature film The Dressmaker.

Anyone familiar with Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries would assume Marion's fashion forte would be the 1920s. She agrees that late 20s and early 30s is a fashion era Marion is most fond of, "Post-War when people could have fun with fashion again", she says.
Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries' main character is a glamorous lady detective, The Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher. She is often seen wearing ornate brooches, sometimes pinned to unconventional places (on the hip of a dressing gown, for example). Marion's brooch collection features inspired 1920s designs; the silver and green bee brooch caught my eye in an instant.

Labassa features gilt embossed wallpapers, ornate stained glass and a rare trompe l’oeil ceiling. If Labassa Mansion's walls could talk, many stories would be told, for the property housed some of Melbourne's elite in the 20th Century. One resident, starlet Louise Lovely, was the first Australian silent film actress to succeed in Hollywood.
