Te Papa Dispaly and War Memorial
In 2015 I was given the opportunity to create a Wearable Arts garment to go in display in Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa main entrance for a month in September while WOW was showing. It was inspired by the soldiers and their love letters sent back home. From the success of the Te Papa display, the National War Memorial in Wellington asked if they could put it on permanent display for a year. During this time, it was seen by Prince Charles and Duchess of Cornwall
