Joanna Zielinska, owner of Byron Bay boutique Orientique, is the lucky winner of our Fashion Feature competition.

Joanna will be attending the Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries Costume Exhibition, featuring more than 40 authentic 1920s costumes from the popular ABC television series Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries.

Visitors to the exhibition will be taken on a journey into the creation of Miss Fisher’s world, from the pages of the Phryne Fisher mystery series of books.

Joanna said she was excited to have won the opportunity to immerse herself in the era. ‘A lot of the looks I source for Orientique are 1920s-inspired, so this is a great chance to view a true collection of garments,’ she said.

Old Government House in Parramatta, Sydney, has been transformed until June 1. Tickets are available online through http://www.nationaltrust.org.au.
