World of Wearable Art

Bringing the world of fashion to Wellington

Beginning in Nelson in 1988, The World of WearableArt® is now a global international design competition held annually in Wellington. Artists use the human body as a blank canvas to create wearable works of art to be paraded in the Awards Show in September where art, fashion and theatre come together in spectacular form. This uniquely Wellington event draws audiences of more than 55,000.

How we help
