• Pasifika Clothing est 1992

    The exhibition Pasifika Clothing est 1992 documents the story of an urban fashion label founded by Stan Tallon and Sjimmy Fransen and features photography, music, film archives and samples of clothing. Pasifika Clothing was started as an incubator for emerging Pacific designers; mixing business and socio/political goals with indigenous cultural values. In 1993, Pasifika Clothing opened a shop in High Street and sold wholesale to high end stores such as World and Paris Texas; meanwhile aligning the label with New Zealand hip hop culture and an emerging Tāmaki-Makaurau/Pasifika/Aotearoa/Indigeni cultural identity.
