Rate this book
One of the most interesting cultural phenomena in New Zealand over the past 20 years has been the spectacular success of the World of WearableArt. This an annual competition and award show that explores the intersection between fashion and art, through a genre popularly known as wearable art. This unique event, which draws an audience in Wellington of around 35, 000 people, has encouraged an explosion of creative activity, inspiring a wide range of fashion designers, artists, costume makers and other craft artists from all over the world to participate.

The garments are constructed from an extraordinary array of materials - car parts, wood shavings, zips, silk, potato chip packets, seaweed, slices of toast, old telephone parts, paper clips, corrugated iron, gloves, feathers - the list is endless.

The World of WearableArt is the second edition of this truly original visual design sourcebook. Completely revised with all new photographs, it features the best garments that have been entered over recent years in a remarkable celebration of the diversity and creativity of wearable art.
