Hillary the Height of Fashion

Newcastle designer, Nigel Cabourn, has released a limited-edition clothing range inspired by Sir Edmund Hillary’s conquest of Everest in 1953. The collection was launched at an exhibition in Tokyo honouring the event’s 50th anniversary earlier this year, and will be stocked at high-end department stores Harvey Nichols, Jones and Selfridges. Cabourn visited the Auckland Museum to research his designs, which are made out of genuine British military fabrics.
