  • The New Zealand Fashion Museum is a museum of fashion in New Zealand, established in 2010. It was the brainchild of fashion designer and fashion historian Doris de Pont. Established as a charitable trust in January 2010, the museum holds "pop-up" exhibitions around New Zealand and runs as an online museum. The museum draws from public and private collections to pull together its exhibitions, featuring designers such as Liz Findlay and Margi Robertson. Looking Terrific – the Story of El Jay was its first pop-up exhibition and it was curated by Doris de Pont. The exhibition showcased over 50 vintage garments by New Zealand fashion industry leader Gus Fisher and his label El Jay. The Auckland exhibition was held at the Gus Fisher Gallery and the Wellington season was hosted by Kirkcaldie and Stains, who welcomed the clothes back into their store as loyal stockists of El Jay during its fifty-year history. In 2018, the museum curated and presented a century of summer fashion. In 2019, the museum curated Moana Currents: Dressing Aotearoa Now. This exhibition was presented by the New Zealand Fashion Museum in partnership with Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery in Titirangi. (en)
