On Friday 13 October, Dame Patsy and Sir David hosted a showcase of Matairangi Mahi Toi Pasifika artist in residence Lindah Lepou's works. Lindah is a fashion designer whose garments are more artworks than clothing. All Lindah's designs feature Pasifika elements and innovative use of traditional materials. The works in the showcase were created during Lindah's three month residency in a cottage in the grounds at Government House.
The Matairangi Mahi Toi artist in residence programme is operated jointly by Government House and Massey University.
