Letter from Maudie is a column by Angela Lassig published monthly in Auckland's Ponsonby News. Maudie is a fictitious dressmaker in her 20s who lives in Ponsonby in the 1920s.Since Maudie's creation in late 2009 her letters have revealed her extensive network of friends and relatives throughout NZ who are regularly regaled with news (and much gossip) about her neighbourhood, her acquaintances and of course her fabulous frocks!

Angela will talk about Maudie's development, the reserach underpinning her writing and show images of some of the clothes and accessories that have inspired Maudie's individual and stylish fashions.

Angela Lassig is a well-known curator. Angela has spent the last 25 years working as a curator in both Australia and NZ during which time she has developed a specialist knowledge and interest in fashion, dress and textiles.

She has recently published a book on contemporary NZ fashion and now works freelance as a fashion historian.

A light supper will be served after the presentation.
