Dunedin fashion, like its sound, has always been distinct and now you can experience this unique side to the city at Fashion Fwd >> Disruption through Design - an exciting new exhibition presented by Otago Museum in conjunction with iD Dunedin Fashion.
Opening on Saturday 27 March 2021 and running through until 17 October, this stunning exhibition is a celebration of fabulous frocks, beautiful couture and the voices of fashion disruptors.
Gathered from iD Emerging Designer finalists from the last 16 years and garments from around the world, this fashion is brazen, chic and defiant. Pieces are grouped with selected items from Otago Museum’s collection that spans centuries.
Rolling out alongside the exhibition is a programme of pop-up fashion events, workshops, talks from the godmothers of Dunedin fashion, collaborations and travel packages to make the most of your time exploring the local restaurants, bars, festivals, and fantastic shopping experiences.
