The WOW story

World of WearableArt, known as WOW, is a renowned international design competition that attracts hundreds of entries from all over the world. 

Celebrating the Decade

Welcome to World of WearableArt 

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 Show season together. 

The World of WearableArt 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.

Watch as we look over some of the greatest show moments and most breathtaking garments from 2010 – 2019, looking back on the decade and looking forward to what’s to come.
