Wearable Creationz

HI Wearable Art Large Web -01

Now a feature event of Home Industry, Wearable Creationz just gets better every year.  

 

Wearable Art is the painted canvas come to life.  

How does this differ from costume?

A Wearable Arts piece is a centre of its own world, a complete visual drama.  It does not need a script to shine and tell its story.  Visually it breaks costume conventions, giving complete freedom to the Artist/Designer to reveal the imaginings of their inner world in ever new and challenging ways.

Wearable Arts can be sewn, constructed, glued, painted, collaged, riveted, woven and knitted. They can be made from metals, recycled found objects, silk, rubber, natural fibres, industrial offcuts or whatever substance can be sculptured, coaxed, charmed and if required, bent by the will of the artist.

 

We are looking for that WOW factor!

 

 

Category 1 - Hatwalk ~ Catwalk

Create and craft a headpiece inspired by just about anything.  It can be futuristic, formidable, fun and flamboyant with multiple colours, a dazzling fascintator for a dream girl, an umbrella hat for jester .... just let your imagination run wild!

Note: there is a junior (primary school) and open class in this category. 

 

Category 2 - Bizzare Bras

Be innovative, outrageous and daring when you create your Bizzare Bra.  Let your imagination run wild by using a range of breath-taking materials and styles such as kitchen utensils, cable ties, artificial flowers, car parts, to name just a few.  Don't be afraid to be different!

 

Category 3 - Childs Novelty Costume

Create a costume that any child would be excited to wear.  From space man, superman, dinosaur, lizard to a fairy tale princess, the range is endless.  Commercial patterns may be used but no store bought garments will be accepted.

 

Category 4 - Upcycled Rio Tinto Uniform

Hand or machine made garments reconstructed from an old/disused/worn-out Rio Tinto uniform.  Get creative!

 

Category 5 - Sustainability Award

Awarded to the designer who is concerned about protecting the environment and uses materials that would otherwise be discarded.  at least 85% of the garment must be make from recycled materials. 

 

Category 6 - Avant Garde

Create a wearable work of art that is revoluntionary, extravagant and extrovert, but still stylish and made with skill.  Be driven by dreams and fantasies, not by the usual restrictions of fashion.  A design that can be worn on any catwalk that challenges the idea of what fashion is.
