Win a double pass to Glory Days' vintage wedding dress exhibition
Glory Days is proud to present Till Death Us Do Part: Fifty Years of Vintage Wedding Style.
Featuring over 20 wedding dresses from the 1930s - 1970s, Till Death Us Do Part will be exhibited at one of Auckland’s premiere historic houses, the rambling Gothic mansion Highwic, launching on 14th May and running until 30th June 2017.
The exhibition will explore changes in bridal fashions over the 20th century, focusing on and showcasing vintage wedding dresses from the 1930s to the 1970s. Aside from giving the public an opportunity to get up close to these precious textiles, Till Death Us Do Part will delve into the social history of weddings, exploring historical shifts and changes in cultural attitudes towards love and marriage.
As well as the displays and programme of events, the gowns will be auctioned off at the end of the exhibition. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the collection will go to The Aunties – an organisation which provides sustained support for women and children who have experienced domestic violence.
