For New Zealand Fashion Week we’re sharing some of our favourite images of New Zealand fashion.
Over the years, Christchurch City Libraries has built up a collection of local images. Many of these are donated from private collections and capture the places and people of Christchurch, and Canterbury’s history. Some of these we’ve grouped into themed image collections, including one on Costume and Fashion.
Our image collection is mostly made up of early 20th century images but is less comprehensive in terms of more recent history. If you’ve got photos that you think we’d be interested in then please contact us.
In the meantime, here are some oldies but goodies in the fashion stakes –
