Glass of Fashion

Award-winning costumes from the Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand

For the first time the Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand releases some of its award-winning costumes for display. The Museum is proud to present The Glass of Fashion with nine of the Shakespeare Globe Centre’s best student-designed costumes, winners of its annual costume design competition.


These costumes have never been shown outside the Globe Theatre London, where the winning designers’ works were first exhibited. From its own rich collection, the Museum also shows 16th and 17th century objects and other treasures chosen in response to Shakespeare, the characters and their costumes.
