This dress by Auckland-based Papua New Guinean designer Andrew (Dru) Douglas is a unique balance of history and modernity. It is part of Dru's first collection under his label, Lumai, where he has re-imagined a garment traditionally worn by women in Papua New Guinea - the meri blouse. It is worn with a pendant by Neil Adcock.

We’re not your typical museum.

With no fixed abode other than this website, the New Zealand Fashion Museum is for anyone with a love of fashion, heritage, innovation and creativity. It is a museum dedicated to the curation of New Zealand’s rich fashion story, making what we wear an essential part of the cultural conversation in the present and for the future.
