Wearable arts collaboration

Students from Queen Margaret College and Wellington High School collaborated to create wearable arts costumes for display in the main windows of the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. Their work followed previous Queen Margaret wearable arts displays at Te Papa in 2006 and, in 2007, a Queen Margaret College year 13 student developed a costume over a full year, while the two Wellington High students developed half a costume each as a two-term project.
