World of WearableArt Awards Competition
The World of WearableArt (WOW) Awards Competition is an internationally renowned design competition that attracts entries from over 40 countries each year. Anything that is wearable art can find a place on the stage, as long as it is original, innovative and well executed.
For three weeks every year, WOW showcases the best of these creations in a spectacular show that takes over New Zealand’s vibrant capital city of Wellington in an explosion of creativity. This year 60,000 people will see the show.
We’ll be attending the Designer’s Day activities as well as opening night of the show, the awards ceremony and after party, and a trip across Cook Straight to the World of WearbleArt & Classic Car Museum Where Grendel’s Mother will be put on display!
