Walk the Walk: The Original

Part of Auckland's Urban Walking Festival, 'Walk the Walk: The Original' was researched as part of the exhibition, Walk the Walk. Designed to reveal the traces that remain of Auckland’s inner city fashion history, the stories on the walking tour peel back the layers of this often overlooked aspect of our cultural heritage. Join us on a fascinating 90 minute tour of the buildings and places that highlight 150 years of fashionable Auckland.

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.
