Guests will be treated to view a beautiful privately owned collection of vintage garments, displayed amongst a collection of classic Mercedes-Benz motor vehicles.
The collection is owned by Hilaire Field, and includes beautiful clothes such as day dresses, ball and evening gowns, wedding dresses, lingerie, gloves and evening bags. Hilaire began collecting when she inherited her aunt’s wardrobe, which included garments made by prominent New Zealand designers such as Bruce Papas and Colin Cole. She kept the most beautiful of her aunt’s gowns, dresses, hats and gloves and has continued to add to this collection over the last 20 years.
The show will be a memorable evening of champagne and canapés, whilst you discover stunning silhouettes and delicate fabrics to reaffirm our love for detail, unique to the 40s, 50s and 60s.
Winners of My Kitchen Rules 2014, Neena and Belinda will be catering the event. All proceeds from the event will go towards supporting the 3,500 families Ronald McDonald House Charities takes care of every year.
Programmes like our Ronald McDonald Houses endeavour to strengthen Kiwi families who are away from home with a hospitalised child, by providing free accommodation and support services. Most importantly, we ensure these families can remain close so that they will be better placed to cope and help their children heal.
