‘Seam’s’ living art on show

‘Seam’s’ living art on show
Michael Hirschfeld Gallery
24 June – 23 July 2000

The names of the garments say it all – ‘Bombastic Gown,’ ‘Possum Yam’, ‘Pohutakawa’…. six Wellington designers have unleashed their creativity in a series of specially created outfits for a new exhibition at the Michael Hirschfeld Gallery.

Seam brings the living art of fashion into the gallery, says Rebecca Wilson, who co-curated the exhibition with Amber Wilkie. “This was a great opportunity for local designers to give their creativity free rein, without the usual restrictions of the marketplace. ”

Seam features one garment from each of the five established Wellington designers: Zana Feuchs, Robyn Mathieson, Andrea Moore, Starfish, and Megan Tuffery, as well as the emerging menswear designer Giao Ngoc Tran.

Andrea Moore was the first Wellington designer to be invited to participate in the prestigious Young Generation Parade at Australian Fashion Week, held this year. She and Robyn Mathieson are co-organisers of the now bi-annual Wellington Collection fashion show. All the designers studied fashion at Wellington Polytechnic, and most have outlets nationwide and in Australia. Garments range from an innovative man’s tunic made from a possum fur / merino wool blend, to evening dresses.

City Gallery, Wellington thanks Felix for supporting the exhibition launch. Seam is presented within the Michael Hirschfeld Gallery’s innovative programme which spans a variety of artforms including the fine arts, installation, architecture and design. The Hirschfeld exhibitions programme, 360 – a full perspective on Wellington Art, is generously sponsored by Designworks.
