The New Zealand Fashion Museum in partnership with Auckland Council, Heart of the City, and Smith + Caughey's presents Walk the Walk: a History of Fashion in the City, a programme of events that share a fascinating story of fashionable Auckland.
Smith + Caughey’s will host the exhibition in the historic Lippincott Room on the 6th Floor from 11am to 5pm daily. This venue has a proud history of its own as the home of the Auckland Lyceum Club which was founded in 1919 with the aim of providing a welcome and intellectually stimulating environment for educated and energetic women. The exhibition will provide a rare opportunity to visit this lovely venue and an auspicious background for the Fashion Museum to display garments from over 20 local designers, manufacturers and retailers from the past and today.
