Home Sewn is an exciting 'pop-up' fashion exhibition by the New Zealand Fashion Museum which is a retrospective view of the home sewing evolution in New Zealand.
While portraying a visual record of past home sewn fashion, sourced from private collections, Home Sewn also demonstrates the changing face of fashion through the decades accompanied by personal anecdotes of contributors, photographs and clippings which bring them to life. Sewing machines, tools of the trade, fabrics, notions and the inevitable paper patterns are the backdrop. But the present is also featured with an outstanding collection of designs from our young practitioners of fashion today.
The exhibition is also the launch pad for the New Zealand Fashion Museum’s latest book, Home Sewn, which profiles 10 leading New Zealand designers, each of whom share a pattern from one of their stunning collections and provides an overview of our home sewing history by curator Doris de Pont.
Home Sewn features a workshop programme which teaches sewing skills. For workshop times and dates visit the New Zealand Fashion Museum Facebook page.
