I went to the dress rehearsal of this year’s World Of Wearableart (WOW) Award Show, the other night and was blown away.

One long word sums up the show – ‘fantastic’; ‘wow’ is already used. Great music and dancing, and great pieces of wearable art.

This year the show was open by Te Radar; he warmed up the audience.

This year children’s section was very well integrated – good fit between the garments and its theme of books. A big fold out castle, inside a book, descends from the ceiling. There is a fun little dance by paper cut-out dolls at the end. A past winner – a pile of books – provided some continuity.

The UV – officially known as the Illuminated – section really carried me away. This year there were a number of colourful yet sublte garments – flock of leaves and kites.

The circus segment worked really well. There are miniature elephants – who do tricks!

Loved the ‘tron’ light suits.

Bizzare Bra worked really well with the tropical/Latin theme.

If you can get a ticket go to this.
