Breast Cancer Cure

Join Breast Cancer Cure for an evening of fashion, film, and fundraising for breast cancer research in New Zealand.

Step into a world of beauty and brilliance at the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki, where Guo Pei's exquisite designs take center stage. Experience the magic of her iconic couture creations up close, then join us for an intimate conversation with two extraordinarily talented New Zealand women.

Hear from international award-winning filmmaker Pietra Brettkelly and multi-talented internationally acclaimed fashion designer and trailblazer Kiri Nathan.

Pietra Brettkelly is the director of the Oscar-selected documentary Yellow is Forbidden and Kiri Nathan is the first Māori fashion designer to open NZ Fashion Week: Kahuria.

This conversation promises to offer a very special insight into the genius of China’s most renowned couturier. You will hear first-hand about Guo Pei's passion and discipline.

After two years of documenting Guo Pei's journey, Pietra had attended four Paris Fashion Weeks, was a regular at Guo Pei’s atelier, watched designs turn from sketches into jaw-dropping creations, had full backstage access, saw Guo Pei's artistry transform the fashion world and developed a lifelong friendship with this visionary designer.

Kiri is a member of the NZ Order of Merit and finalist of New Zealander of the Year 2024. Her fashion work is deeply rooted in Māori culture and in indigenous practices and her designs have featured on the world’s red carpets and runways, adorning Beyoncé, Barack and Michelle Obama, Chelsea Winstanley and Jacinda Ardern.

Hosted by Breast Cancer Cure Ambassador Petra Bagust, don't miss this extraordinary opportunity to discover the untold stories from behind-the-scenes. Delve into the minds of two trailblazing artists united by a passion for pushing boundaries.

This is more than just an event; it's a journey into the heart and soul of fashion and film.
