The World of WearableArt™ (WOW®) Awards Show is New Zealand’s single largest arts show, with more than 50,000 show goers from around the world attending every year. In a breathtaking spectacular of dance, theatre, music and art, incredible garments are brought to life in a 2 hour non-stop spectacular.
The garments are the top designs selected in the annual WOW® Awards competition, which challenges designers to take “art off the wall and onto the human form”. Designers come from all occupations, from many different backgrounds and from all over the world. WOW® gives these designers the opportunity to be innovative, original and not bound by the constraints of commercialism. The only limit is their imagination.
This is a truly world-class event, showcasing creativity through breathtaking choreography with sophisticated lighting and an amazing soundscape. The show needs no narration – the high energy show tells its own strong visual and aural story.
“Prepare to be inspired, uplifted, and taken on a breathtaking journey.”
