Elle and the Youthquake: The chang­ing face of fashion is a pop-up ex­hi­bi­tion that looks at 1960s youth fashion and its present-day ex­po­nents.

The ex­hi­bi­tion, to be held at the Nathan Club at Brit­o­mart be­tween Septem­ber 27 and Oc­to­ber 19, will look at the cur­rent face of young New Zealand fashion de­sign and of­fer some of to­day’s up and com­ing de­sign­ers a plat­form to show­case their ideas and to sell their cre­ations.

To make this hap­pen, or­gan­is­ers are look­ing for gar­ments with the Elle la­bel (or Adele, fashion de­signer Wendy Gan­ley’s first la­bel), late 1950s and early 1960s gar­ments by Babs Radon (Barbara Her­rick) who trained Wendy Gan­ley, early Mar­i­lyn Sainty gar­ments as she be­gan her fashion ca­reer in Wendy Gan­ley’s Hamil­ton work­room in 1963 and any pho­tos or mem­o­ries of Wendy Gan­ley and her Elle bou­tiques.

Ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est from young de­sign­ers who would like to be con­sid­ered for in­clu­sion in the ex­hi­bi­tion and pop-up shop are be­ing ac­cepted now.
