Empire line dress in paisley print

Lyn Buckley purchased this dress on a trip to Auckland in 1970 because she fell in love with it. When she married later that same year she thought it perfectly suited to a quiet Registry Office wedding and celebratory picnic in the Wellington Botanical Gardens. Read more about 1970s fashion in the New Zealand Fashion Museum publication
