New Zealand Fashion in pictures: Kete Christchurch

It’s New Zealand Fashion Week and here on the Christchurch City Libraries blog we’re going to be sharing some of our favourite images of New Zealand fashion.

First up are photos from Kete Christchurch, our online repository for community stories (it’s a sort of “digital shoebox” that anyone can contribute to). It’s also a great place to find images of local people through the years and sometimes they’ve got their “Sunday Best” on. Many of the best images on Kete Christchurch are from our annual Photo Hunt competition which we’ll be running again later in the year.

Have a look at some of these great ensembles. There are…
