Established in 2010 as a Charitable Trust, it records and shares the stories of the people, objects and photographs that have contributed to the development of New Zealand's unique fashion identity, making them visible and accessible to a broad audience through pop-up exhibitions, publications and our online museum. The Fashion Museum undertakes its own research and also draws together the collective knowledge held in our public institutions and by many individuals all around the country who are invited to contribute.
