Experience the World of Wearableart as Never Seen Before This November at Auckland Museum

A brand new exhibition from the World of WearableArt™ (WOW) opens on the 21st November at Auckland War Memorial Museum prior to embarking on a worldwide tour.

The exhibition features a showcase of WOW® garments, selected from previous year’s winners, and offers a behind the scenes look at the garments, the artists and their experiences, as well as seeing how the competition and awards show comes together.

This is the first chance for New Zealanders to see the exhibition before it heads offshore.

The exhibition is the result of support from the Government’s Major Events Development Fund, which aids the development of three international touring exhibitions; an international education programme which includes opportunities for international design students to enter the competition and attracts students to study in New Zealand; as well as opportunities for international business representatives to be hosted at the Awards Show in Wellington and at the touring exhibitions worldwide.

“Celebrating the World of WearableArt event on a global stage and presenting a taste of the WOW experience around the world is the realisation of a dream come true. We are excited to be able to share the creativity and inspiration that WOW generates.” Says WOW Founder Dame Suzie Moncrieff.

Auckland War Memorial Museum Director Roy Clare adds “Aucklanders will share delight that our city has the privilege to host this fantastic exhibition before it heads overseas. WOW is a vibrant and creative organisation that has won international respect for innovation and flair; as a museum we are excited to be able to work with them once again and to continue to strengthen our positive partnership, with its many echoes in our collections.”
