This winter we’re introducing a new event: Fashion History Evenings on the 2nd Friday of the month.

Come along for a fun evening of tea, nibbles and fascinating textile and fashion history utilising Leimomi’s collection of antique textiles and her reproductions of historical garments.

Mexican textiles, collection of Leimomi Oakes

 

This evening we’ll be warming things up in the middle of winter with a look at how Mexico and Central and South American have influenced textile designs.  We’ll explore why ‘fiesta’ fashions and fabric were so popular during and immediately after WWII, even in New Zealand, where South of the Border was North of the Pacific.

The talk will be illustrated with fabrics, fashions, and textiles inherited from Leimomi’s grandmother in San Diego, and collected in New Zealand.

 

Cost: $10
