Ag Art Wear fashion showcase celebrates 20 years

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.
