Sponsor a frock

You can help the New Zealand Fashion Museum add to its online collection by sponsoring a frock.

The virtual Museum, which regularly curates and holds pop-up exhibitions throughout New Zealand, has been working hard on building an online historical fashion archive and resource.

For $40 you can sponsor the uploading of a new collection item to the Museum website (or give it as a gift). Your name (or gift recipient’s name) will be displayed on the Sponsor a Frock page.

This gorgeous green Carena dress (circa 1973) was sponsored by Kelly Dix. The dress was bought by Christine Bell to wear to a fruit growers dinner and ball. Carena was manufactured by Dandy Sales Division which was located at 27 St Kevin’s Arcade, Karangahape Rd, Auckland.

Denim update

Levi’s has collaborated with cyclists to design its new Commuter range of active-wear based on the requirements of busy urbanites, so you can ride to work on-trend, without ditching comfort for the sake of fashion.

The collection includes jeans based on the original 511 skinny – the most popular skinny fit for men. Enhanced with stretch reinforcement for optimum cycling performance, 3M reflectivity for safety, a higher rise back and water and dirt repellent – these jeans will become your next go-to for daily wear and adventure alike.

As well as being a wardrobe staple, denim has been popular on the runway this year. Stolen Girlfriends Club has recently released its own denim sub-category Stolen Denim. Its debut collection ‘Real Cool Time’ is a rock and roll themed range featuring contemporary black denim pieces as homage to musical muses such as T-Rex, Thin Lizzy and Baby Strange. Anyone who purchases a pair from Stolen Girlfriend’s Club’s new Nuffield Street store in Newmarket (which opens mid-May), will go into the draw to win a custom G-Spot Deluxe X guitar.

Andrea Moore has also launched ‘Virgin’, a denim range with an ecological awareness. The wearer is encouraged to distress their own jeans to due to rising environmental and health issues as a result of chemicals used to distress denim in factories.
