Mabel Chinn

Opera shoes

These items belonged to Mrs Olive Mabel Clarice (Yuk Seen) Chinn (1884-1991). Mabel Chin's father was born in China and her mother was born in Sydney to Chinese-born parents. The Opera gown and shoes related to the fundraising work which Madel Wong did in the 1930s-1940s. Mabel established the 'Oriental Orchestra' which comprised of her and her children who would sing and play musical instruments. They played mostly western tunes but also a few Chinese ones or western songs using Chinese instruments.

Opera gown

There are strong links between Cantonese costumes and Chinese processions in Australia. The use of such as costume by Mabel for her fundraising is an extension of this. Originally a garment like this would have been worn by a male with trousers underneath and splits at the side.
