Wedding Dresses: WORLD in Unveiled

Francis Hooper, Denise L’Estrange-Corbet, and Benny Castles of WORLD discuss their inspiration for the outfits that appear in Unveiled. Plus, we peek backstage as the dress is prepared for its debut at New Zealand Fashion Week, 2011.

Over the summer of 2011-2012, Te Papa hosted Unveiled: 200 Years of Wedding Fashion from the Victoria & Albert Museum, London. For the exhibition, Te Papa commissioned three wedding ensembles by New Zealand designers. As designers of men’s and women’s wear, WORLD were invited to design both a bride and groom’s outfit.

Filmed in 2011 for the exhibition Unveiled: 200 Years of Wedding Fashion from the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, 17 Dec 2011 – 22 Apr 2012.
