First birthday silk kerchief

This silk habutai kerchief was produced to honour the first anniversary of the New Zealand Fashion Museum online. Designed by Hilary Young, a textile designer and author/illustrator who is currently based in France, it has been digitally printed at AUT’s Textile and Design Lab. The scarf measures 50cm x 50cm. All profits from the sale of the kerchief will go towards the development of future pop-up exhibitions and our online collection.

The New Zealand Fashion Museum is for anyone with a love of fashion, heritage, innovation and creativity. With no fixed abode other than this online address, it is a museum dedicated to the curation of New Zealand’s rich fashion past, making it relevant for the present and future. 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.
