Hosted by the iconic Celeste Barber (Wellmania), known for her comedic takes on unrealistic beauty standards, The Way We Wore takes a fresh lens to the history of Australian fashion.

Revealing how clothes can provide intimate and surprising insights into the evolution of a country, the series uses a historical narrative to shine a light on current conversations about diversity, gender expectations and sustainability.

Across three highly entertaining episodes, The Way We Wore interrogates the invention and evolution of consumer culture, the power of the media in influencing cultural identity, and the role of fashion in pushing for social change.

The series is brimming with rich archival material and deeply personal interviews with Australian fashion icons including Akira Isogawa, Catherine Martin and Charlee Fraser. With Celeste Barber at the helm, there are also lots of laughs along the way as the series lays bare why fashion matters.
