Evening gown with pleated skirt
The Trilby Yates workroom was located on the 2nd floor of 26 Durham Street West in Auckland but this photo was taken in the retail store on Queen Street. Nancy Hudson worked with the business owner, Julia Yates, to design the garments until the late 1940s when she left for Australia. Other designers included June Todd, Maxine Sigglecoe and later Julia's niece Digsy Yates.
