Designing Women at the National Gallery of Victoria is a celebration of female design talent and their extraordinary creativity. Drawing on the NGV’s extensive collection of everything from lighting to textile design and architecture.

The exhibition spans from 1980 to 2018, and features more than 50 works across a range of disciplines.

Increasingly, our cities, services, products and brands are profoundly enhanced by the creative prowess of women. Designing Women shares that female designers, often overlooked in a male dominated industry, are producing sophisticated, iconic, and thought provoking work of exceptional quality.
