Cerise silk slip dress

Annie Bonza returned from Rarotonga to Auckland in 1984. She worked as a consultant designer for several years, before opening a new boutique in Jervois Road, Herne Bay in 1988. Once again, it was her distinctive braiding that became her trademark, along with her head-turning window displays, usually featuring her most glamorous creations.
