Well Dear Reader, I have been invited to attend the PSA Women's Forum in May. I am really looking forward at networking with other like-minded trade unionists, administrators, mothers, wives, and idealists.
While I am in Wellington, I am hoping to see two exhibitions which will be on show at the wonderful Te Papa museum. The first is Enriching Fashion An Eye for detail:
" intricately beaded fabrics and painstakingly embroidered outfits", "precious metals and extravagant displays of feathers and furs", – from hats and bags, to shoes and suits.
The second is Yield: Making Fashion Without Making Waste: http://www.wellingtonnz.com/event/yield_making_fashion_without_making_waste and features works by Zandra Rhodes and Yeohlee Teng.
Although I won't be in Wellington for http://www.wellingtonnz.com/event/handmade_2011
it certainly is something I would want to take a look at.
