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, innovative ideas and creativity. It is a museum dedicated to sharing Aotearoa's rich fashion story, making what we wear an essential part of the cultural conversation in the present and for the future.
