Miscellenia, Textiles & Costume

Get your textiles on!

If you are in New Zealand, and interested in costume and textiles, you should definitely know about the Costume and Textile Association of New Zealand, and you should definitely be hurrying to get your registration in for their annual symposium by Friday June 3.

The symposium takes place over the 17th and 18th of June in Tauranga, and will feature all sorts of fabulous talks about costumes and textiles (and probably some boring ones too, but hopefully not too many of those!) all with the theme of ‘Celebration’.

Best of all, it will feature me, in fabulous frocks both days, and giving a talk about a particularly fabulous frock on Sunday.

Here is a sneak peek at what I will be talking about:


  1. Dang. I can’t make it.

    What about events in 6-8 months or so? Steampunk galas, awesome talks, something like that? I might be able to swing it then, and would love to base my trip to NZ around something like that…

  2. I’m not coming to New Zealand anytime soon, and I’m envious…
    But just a little bit, because I have a lacy 1930s fabulosity of my own now. (I have no idea what your fabulosity is, though.)

    • Not 1930s, but fabulous! I do want to see your 1930s fabulosity though – after all, you can never have too much fabulousness!
