The New Zealand Fashion Museum is a charitable trust, which reaches out to the community to find heritage garments, pictures and stories. Its latest pop-up collection, Elle and the Youthquake: The changing face of fashion, looks at this emergence of young designers and the mini dresses and pantsuits that came with the dancing culture of the ‘60s.
