World of WearableArt (WOW) is a unique combination of the world’s leading wearable art competition and a spectacular stage show held in Wellington, New Zealand. WOW attracts cutting-edge talent from across the globe, from the garment designers to the show’s dancers, aerialists, musicians and performers and the creative team which spends around 18 months bringing each bespoke WOW Awards Season together.
World of WearableArt Awards Show is New Zealand’s largest theatrical production and is a not-to-be-missed event for around 60,000 people as well as a coveted competition for international designers working at the cutting edge of fashion, art, design and costume, alongside students and first-time entrants.
To enter the World of WearableArt Awards Competition you need to create a complete garment. Drawings and sketches will not be accepted. You must include at least four full length photographs of your actual completed garment as part of your entry submission.
Whether you’re entering to progress yourself professionally or simply looking for a creative challenge, WOW is a wonderful platform to push the limits of your imagination and creativity.
There is no entry fee.
Open worldwide to anyone. Entrants must be 18 years or over.
The Awards offers not only prize money but also profile and promotion of designers’ work, networking opportunities, and access to exclusive and highly sought-after internships and residencies with exciting creative companies around the world.
