Imagination takes flight

We had an amazing time with World of WearableArt (WOW) creating an extraordinary experience on the runway. Take a peek at this exclusive behind-the-scenes look to see how the team of 19 people captured the photo of imagination taking flight…

About the World of WearableArt Awards

Each year, WOW invites designers to create the unimaginable, to challenge the conventional, and defy creative expectations as they make works of art that will be brought to life on a global stage at the annual WOW Awards Show. For the audience, WOW is a feast for the eyes, where fashion, art and theatre collide. For the designers, it’s an opportunity to create a work free from commercial restrictions, to go on a creative journey with their peers and to have their talent recognised.

Visit Wellington from 26 Sept - 13 Oct 2019 and journey out of this world to a breathtaking world of creativity as we see incredible works of wearable art from around the world come to life on stage.
Tickets on sale now.

Wellington Airport is proud to help imagination take flight as a partner of WOW.
