Wellington, New ...
The 1830’s ensemble consists of a corset, bustle, petticoat, over-skirt and bodice, and a bonnet. Taking about 200 hours to complete, it was all made during my first year of Costume Construction training at Toi Whakaari.
Photographs are taken by Leah Reilly, and my model is Bridget Carpenter.
