Free FINZ Lectures on NZ Fashion Design

FINZ and the Te Papa Press have joined forces and are offering free lectures that will examine the emergence of contemporary fashion design in New Zealand and the influences that have shaped this country’s designers.

Angela Lassig, author of the newly released book ‘New Zealand Fashion Design‘ will present each of the 90 minute lectures and will be joined by a designer guest speaker.

Lassig’s new 532-page book profiles 25 of the country’s top contemporary fashion designers, providing an insight into their personal and professional development, design philosophies and inspiration, as well as the key developments that have brought New Zealand fashion to international attention over the past 30 years.

Lassig was senior curator (history) at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa for eight years and remains active in research on fashion and textile history in nineteenth and twentieth-century New Zealand.
