Inspiration

Diva’s Dreamscape is one of three garments that New Zealand entrant Peter Wakeman committed to entering in consecutive years of the Competition. The garment represents a Diva that dreams in Deco, inspired by the Art Deco style and interpreted through an architectural design.

Using skills developed during a lifetime of working with his hands, including boatbuilding, woodworking, and construction, Wakeman designed and built three fibreglass “frocks” to enter WOW three years in a row – Chica Under Glass (2013), Veniece in Glass Bind (2014) and Diva’s Dreamscape (2015).
