New Zealand music minidress
Annie Bonza won the Lifestyle section of the Benson & Hedges Fashion Design Awards in 1989. Her entry - a black mini dress embellished with braiding, ribbon-work and patches - is a homage to New Zealand music. "New Zealand music needs all the push it can get. I feel almost protective of it," Annie told New Zealand Woman's Weekly magazine in 1989.
Annie entered four garments in the 1989 awards. She was highly commended for her entry in the Wool award, a cream fur-trimmed coat called 'Aotearoa'.
