Watch: The Auckland Museum Acquires Miss Crabb's Archives

The beloved New Zealand label's legacy lives on as Auckland Museum selects key pieces to keep

Kristine Crabb will be closing down her iconic Ponsonby Road store and label Miss Crabb on March 31. After almost 15 years in business, she’s got her sights set on the next chapter.

Leaving behind a strong legacy, the Miss Crabb woman will continue to live on in a carefully curated collection from the archives that will find a new home at the Auckland Museum. The pieces have been hand-picked by Kristine in collaboration with the Auckland Museum's curator Grace Lai.

Watch our exclusive video below as Grace talks us through the process of selection, why the pieces chosen are significant and how they represent Kristine's career.
