The World of WearableArt Awards Show is an international design competition which started in 1987. As the name suggests, WOW features “wearable art” created by designers and presented to the audience during a live show drawing from the creative worlds of fashion, art, design, music, costume and theatre. The show runs for three weeks and this year 60,000 people will attend.
As well as being a theatrical spectacular, it’s also a competition, with winners in different categories and the overall winner being selected by a panel of judges, including the WOW founder Dame Suzie Moncrieff and guest judges from the worlds of art and fashion.
Described as a “Glorious rebellion against the mundane, entry into a magical world where anything is possible”, WOW is very visual, here’s a quick 2 minute video from the WOW website:
