The wearable art competition happens in New Zealand, and it looks like something out of a Katy Perry music video. Actually now after seeing it, I’m pretty sure this is where a Katy Perry costume idea comes from.
It’s the “World of WearableArt,” and it happens every year, for the past 30 years. It’s in Wellington, New Zealand, and is usually a couple weeks long. During the competition, there’s fashion shows, costume contests, photoshoots, all sorts of things. There have been attendance numbers in the 60,000 range – yeah, that’s a big deal.
There are different “categories” as well. Some based on colors, some based on shapes. There’s a “bizarre-bra” category, sci-fi, “under-the-microscope,” and on and on. It’s just such an interesting thing to look at pictures of. Speaking of pictures, here are some from past events. I have to say, this is an interesting fashion show that I’ve never heard of before, and I think it would be really cool to attend. Just to see all the designs and styles up close.
