First judging for WOW nearly done
Fri, 13 Jul 2012 2:27p.m.
The first judging of designs in this year's World of Wearable Arts show is nearly done and the second round of a hunt for models is being held this weekend.
The calendar for the annual extravaganza is getting busy ahead of the season that runs from September 27 to October 7 in Wellington.
A first judging was held in Nelson last weekend. Designers will know if they have been selected next week. Results are posted on Monday and are available online on Tuesday.
A second judging is held in September and final judging on September 26.
There is also a second call for models in Wellington on Sunday.
This year the seven categories include the bizarre bra section, which features in the show every second year.
There are also children's, open, illumination, avant garde, creative excellence and South Pacific sections this year.
The show concept, created in 1987 by Dame Suzie Moncrieff, is to take art off the wall and adorn the human form and showcase it in a dramatic setting.
Last year the show was held earlier to avoid clashing with the Rugby World Cup.
The two-hour show typically showcases around 180 garment entries, including as many as a third from international designers. It is estimated to boost the Wellington economy by $15 million a year.
