“ART THAT WALKS” – Wearable Art Awards
Back this year is the Wearable art Parade, the worldwide phenomenon and the annual Whitsundays Reef Festival Wearable Art Awards is a popular fun event with both students and adults. Participants of all ages love this unique art form and create colourful and innovative garments from interesting and unlikely materials.
“EVERYTHING is included – metal and recycled objects, plastic, rope, wire, tin cans to silk and rubber and just about anything else your imagination dreams can be artfully reconfigured into dramatic outfits as part of the Competition” says Event Organiser Kirsten Orenshaw. “There really is no limit to what you can create and the materials you can use to make it”.
The theme for the 2018 Awards is “The Reef – It’s Magic!” There is also a category “Accessorize” – for artists who wish to create a collection of accessories e.g. a hat, bag and jewellery – modelled on black clothing.
Sponsored by Wilmar Sugar, the competition and fashion parade are one of the highlights of the festival for many aspiring local fashion designers, as well as the hundreds of people who turn out to support the event. Entry is only $5 and there are great cash prizes – are you up to the challenge ???
