Black chantilly lace dress
This garment received much acclaim from the press, prompting one newspaper to call its designer Bruce Papas "the Balenciaga of New Zealand". The dress was purchased by Robyn Harrison from 246 Shopping Centre in Auckland's Queen Street. It is labelled Staevro Boutique, one of two labels that Bruce designed under during his time at 246. Many years later Robyn wrote to him about the dress: "It is a masterpiece of design," she said. Robyn later donated the dress to Auckland Museum.
