Her First Ball
"But in one minute, in one turn, her feet glided, glided. The lights, the azaleas, the dresses, the pink faces, the velvet chairs, all became one beautiful flying wheel" [Her First Ball by Katherine Mansfield, 1921].
A selection of dresses from the Waikato Museum Te Whare Taonga o Waikato collection – we're off to the ball!

Melting the darkness.'
