Based in National Genre Visual Art

New Zealand Fashion Museum

The New Zealand Fashion Museum is a Charitable Trust. Established in 2010, it is the world's first online fashion museum and Aotearoa 's first virtual museum. We have been described internationally as “a very modern undertaking: an online enterprise that organizes exhibitions around the country but has no physical location of its own.” Our work and concept of ‘fashion’ is focused on the idea that clothes are cultural artefacts that carry traditions, narrative, and meaning across generations, cultures, and society. We are making what New Zealanders wear part of our national cultural conversation.
