World of WearableArt™ Awards Show

Enter another world, where fashion, art and theatre collide when the World of WearableArt™ Awards Show returns to Wellington.

"WOW® is a place where reality is suspended and where imagination gives wings to dreamers” - Dame Suzie Moncrieff

Each spring, the World of WearableArt™ Awards Show (WOW®) takes centre stage at Wellington's TSB Bank Arena.

Over 100 garments from 130 international designers are transformed and showcased on stage in a distinctive two hour theatrical extravaganza, with stunning sets, soundscapes, dance, lighting and world-class choreography.

The incredible garments on display are part of the annual World of WearableArt™ Awards competition which challenges designers to take "art off the wall and onto the human form". These talented designers come from all occupations, and from all over the world, to compete for WOW®'s prestigious awards.
