Ag Art Wear fashion showcase celebrates 20 years of creativity




Annah

Organisers of one of Hamilton’s hottest events on the social calendar have just announced that award winning satirist and television presenter Te Radar is to MC the full theatrical production at the finale of this year’s Fieldays Ag Art Wear competition.

Celebrating 20 years of creativity the competition this year welcomes fashion designer, successful entrepreneur, and philanthropist Annah Stretton as the Ambassador and Head Judge for the Ag Art Wear Awards. Annah is offering her unique brand of business savvy and design talent to this year’s competition.

Annah said, “The Ag Art Wear Awards offer creative New Zealanders the opportunity to mix design and art with an agricultural flavour – to support these awards, especially in the Waikato, is something that offers a nice fit to our brand."

Ag Art wear is a garment design competition with three categories; Avant Garde, Designer Traditional and the newly created Classroom Couture category. Designers are limited to creating artistic garments using materials sourced from the farm, rural industries or the natural environment.

With entrants from New Zealand and Australia, an $11,000 prize pool, and a judging panel of elite designers, including Annah Stretton and local textile designer Marion Manson, there are going to be some incredibly innovative outfits on show at the Ag Art Wear ‘Designer in the Field’ Gala Dinner and Awards show.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
