A world where art, fashion and theatre collide and where you can always unexpect the unexpected. 

Enter the World of WearableArt Awards Competition and become part of an international design community; a community that motivates, supports and inspires each other to defy creative expectations and push the boundaries of imagination.

Create a work of wearable art that will come to life on stage at the annual World of WearableArt Awards Show!



Since its inception, the World of WearableArt has been embracing the worlds of art, design and fashion and bringing them together into a theatrical performance like no other. For over thirty years, WOW has been driven to break down the expected boundaries of these worlds and see what is possible when all worlds collide. And of course the advantage of embracing this collision is that the work is more exciting, more innovative and designers have a real creative freedom.

Each year, World of WearableArt invites finalist designers to join us in New Zealand’s capital city, Wellington, for official Awards Week events. Designers are given the opportunity to celebrate their achievements, see their garment come to life on stage, attend the WOW Awards Ceremony and connect with other designers and creatives from around the world during exclusive events and networking opportunities.
