The growth of the World of WearableArt in the last 25 years is now being celebrated with a special book that you should want to have on your coffee table.
The World of WearableArt event draws an audience of over 45,000 people to Wellington every year and has encouraged an explosion of creative activity, inspiring a wide range of fashion designers, artists, costume makers and other creative types from the world over.
The new book, published by Craig Potton Publishing, expands on earlier versions and has been completely revised in a lavish large format with all new photographs. It features the best garments that have been entered over recent years, both in a studio setting with close-up details and with photos taken on stage during the WOW Awards show.
It is available at bookshops and libraries nationwide, as well as at www.craigpotton.co.nz. The standard edition sells for $79.99 while the deluxe edition (signed by Dame Suzie Moncrieff and slipcased) has a pricetag of $120.
