LOCATION SPOTLIGHT: THE DRESSMAKER, VICTORIA



Principal photography for upcoming Australian feature film The Dressmaker took place late last year at Docklands Studios Melbourne and various locations in Victoria.

The Dressmaker follows Myrtle “Tilly” Dunnage as she returns to her hometown, an Australian country town named Dungatar, to take care of her ill mother, Molly, from which she was sent away at the age of ten because of false accusations of murder. Tilly, an expert dressmaker trained by Madeleine Vionnet in Paris, transforms the locals with her couture creations and in the process, exacts revenge on the people who wrongly accused her of murder all those years ago.

The image above depicts the scene of the town looking up at Molly’s house. The set build was erected at the Mount Rothwell Conservation and Research Centre in Victoria located only 45 minutes from Melbourne’s CBD.
