The Wearable Art Awards is not a fashion show, it is a multi-media performance where the human body becomes a living, breathing, moving canvas. We asked artists to go deep into their imaginations to create a wearable piece of art that challenges what most consider to be wearable, or everyday fashion.
We are committed to challenging artists of all mediums to push their imaginations to create evocative, imaginative and thought provoking sculpture for the human body.
More than 400 guests joined us on February 21 and 22 to take part in the Wearable Art Experience.
Thank you to our 2015 Wearable Art Awards sponsors.
Three major prize categories: Best in Show ($1000), Student Prize ($750) and People's Choice ($1000)
All entries were judged by the following classes, with a total of $4750 in prize money being awarded:
