Doris de Pont: Fashion designer and curator

From Upbeat, 1:12 pm on 23 July 2013

Doris de Pont knows all about woollen bathers and bikinis, swimsuits and sundresses, playsuits and parasols. The New Zealand Fashion Museum and New Zealand Maritime Museum have put together an exhibition, about the past one hundred years of beach fashion. 'At the Beach: 100 years of summer fashion in New Zealand' features only New Zealand made or designed garments.

Jesse Mulligan meets Doris de Pont – the brains behind The New Zealand Fashion Museum.
