“WOW is right”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

A great combination of the most rescent show garments and some classics. Amazing to look at them up close and see the superb detailing. The video show is worth watching for its context.WARNING - make sure you give yourself plenty of time. The car museum is also huge and full of impressive vehicles

“'Stunning exhibits'”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Not much more to say that has not been written all ready, being a 'petrol head' made this visit a must and is the finest display of interesting cars I have personally seen for a very long time, excellently presented with lots of period memorabilia to accompany each vehicle and was a joy to view.

“FANTASTIC - A MUST”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Great, would recommend to watch the video before you see the costumes, even my husband said it was good! WOW! a first for anything girly! We have seen the collection in Dunedin but enjoyed this display more. We would highly recommend, even if your not that into fashion, there are some wonderful designers with the most interesting or weird minds....... The cars collection is an added bonus and something to interest the gentlemen.....
