WEARABLE ART SHOWS

What is wearable art?

It is about using ordinary materials, such as newspapers, feed bags, duct tape, wire, beach glass, and wood curls, in unusual ways.

It is about formal art concerns, such as “how a flat object is transformed by curving it in space and time”.

It is about personal and political issues and expression.

It is about totally stylish garments with a twist.

It is about using traditional techniques, such as crocheting, felting, weaving, quilting, embroidery and dyeing.

It is a grand extravaganza about fantasy and the fantastic.

Most of all, it about the unique. It is a show!
