Dress with cornelli detail on bodice

In the 1960s, Annie Bonza made a name for herself as one of the 'it' designers amongst Auckland trend-setters of the time. She began dressing the stars of TV music show C’mon and Victorian Music Hall, the graphic cornelli-inspired designs standing out within the confines of black and white television.
