WOW! The World of Wearable Art!

It's over for another year, a highlight of Wellington's wonderful art scene! Each year in late
Super Nova - The Supreme Winner
September and early October exhibits from all over the world come together to contend for the top prizes in the world of wearable art.
 Entries come from both established and emerging artists and designers, local and international design and fashion schools and individuals with a creative imagination who compete for prizemoney of $165,000. They enter categories like the Bizarre Bra section, Avant Garde, Performance Art etc. The show, which started from small beginnings 30 years ago is a fast moving, show-stopping extravaganza set to music.This was the third year we have seen it and thought the show was better than ever.  Our well-travelled companions reckoned it was the best how they had seen anywhere in the world, quite an accolade for little old Wellington, New Zealand.
Next year's show will be held from the 21st September to the 8th October, and, as always when there is a  Big Show on in
Wellington, accommodation will be at a premium. We would love to have you stay with us at Harbourlights B & B and we have lots of advice and suggestions on how to spend your time here.  Many of the city restaurants have a 'Dinner and Show' deal, the shop fronts in Lambton Quay, our main shopping street join in the WOW theme and the city buzzes with all the visitors from NZ and the world. For budding creative types entries close for next years competition on 31st March.

My favourite entry this year was an entry from the UK: Lippydeema.
