I went to see Home Sewn last week, a pop up exhibition put together by the folks at the New Zealand Fashion Museum. It was such an enjoyable outing! I took a few photos, I wanted to photograph them all… but here’s a wee taster.
The Nathan Gallery 42 Customs Street East, Britomart, Auckland. September 5 – 26, hours 10 – 5 daily.
Have a look at NZ Style Collective post here for many more lovely photos, including the fabulous opening night!
Put together by the talented people over at the New Zealand Fashion Museum and only possible because of the generosity of the owners of the dresses, this is SUCH a good show, and you must see it if you are a sewer, love fashion, or are a bit mad about vintage frocks and social history like me.
Some more pics…
Cool old notions in cabinets…
Including the ‘Pifco’ Trouser Presser, even a man can use it!
I would have liked to have a nosy and see what the finishing is like (perfect I’m sure!) on the inside of the some of the frocks. So much skill represented in one gallery.
Yes, I’m going again before it ends!
ooo thanks ange, i was wondering whether it was worth a schlep into town. i think yes is the answer to that! x
Yes! It’s so worth it!
