NZ'S FIRST WORLD WAR CENTENARY 2014–2019

The Way We Wore - In Service and On The Street

Glory Days magazine and the New Zealand Fashion Museum invite the public to submit photographs of people taken during the First and Second World Wars to feature in a print and online exhibition.

Glory Days magazine and the New Zealand Fashion Museum have joined forces to create The Way We Wore – In Service and On The Street in WWI and WWII. This exhibition aims to bring to light and showcase photographs from the attics and old suitcases of New Zealanders that were taken during the wartime periods 1914 – 1918 and 1939 – 1945.

All New Zealanders are invited to submit images of family and loved ones from these eras which will be hosted online by the New Zealand Fashion Museum, and a selection of The Way We Wore collection will also feature in the upcoming First World War Centenary issue of Glory Days magazine. The aim is to collect a broad range of images from the time that will offer a view of what life was like during those tumultuous times – from those who were posted overseas to serve their country, to civilians who kept the home fires burning.

Rose Jackson, co-editor of Glory Days, says “I recently received a spectacular photograph of my great great grandfather during WWI, posing on a camel in front of the pyramids in Egypt that I never knew existed and it got me thinking about all the other war era photographs that people have stashed away and forgotten. It would be wonderful for New Zealanders to join together and create a collective photographic reference library so these precious images are preserved for future generations.”
