Whetu Tirikatene-Sullivan swept stylishly into parliament in 1967, it was clear that New Zealand had found a fashion icon. The new MP for Southern Maori was to become the longest serving female MP. She was also the first New Zealand politician who truly understood the power of fashion. This landmark exhibition will present a stylish and high-impact showcase of Whetu Tirikatene-Sullivan's unique wardrobe, focusing on the period from the late 1960s to the mid-1970s. The exhibition also showcases the artwork of Ngati Kahungunu artist Sandy Adsett, who provided striking prints for many of the garments included in this exhibition.
