About this Event

Te Uru welcomes Claire Regnault, Senior Curator New Zealand Culture and History at Te Papa, who will be joining us on Saturday 7 August at 1pm to share her research on aloha shirts.


In 2017, Regnault travelled to Hawai'i and collected 83 aloha shirts with a focus on indigenous Hawaiian designers. She worked with Noelle Kahanu, a cultural specialist from University of Hawai'i and Sonya Withers, who was completing a Tautai Oceania Internship at Te Papa. Together, they assembled a group of aloha shirts for Te Papa’s growing collection of Pacific-infused fashion. In this talk at Te Uru, Regnault will reflect on the connection these designers have with their natural environment and how this inspires their designs.


This talk is held as part of the exhibition Arne Loot: Party in Piha, which displays an array of now historical fabrics and fashions including aloha shirts from the 1960s.
