Wearable Art Show
The Wearable Art Show
Extravagant, Dazzling & Fun!
From the wildly absurd, to the serenity of a single petal, to the magic of mermaids and the sea, the inspiration for wearable art can be all of these.
…Or something completely different.
The Wearable Art Show is essentially a fashion show of the most extravagant kind. Exquisite, breathtaking and avant-garde costumes are created by Campbell River’s brilliant artists.
Many Wearable Art Show designers use upcycled materials for dramatic effect… Imagine an elegant gown made from layers and layers of that red netting from onion bags. How about a shimmery flapper-style dress featuring thousands of linked silver pulltabs from beer cans? You know that tin foil used for colouring hair in salons? Imagine piecing those bits together to create an electrifying design worthy of a magnificent Broadway production.
These powerful creations rocked the stage for the 2019 Wearable Art Show. Now we’re back with a bigger entourage to present the season’s hottest event! And it’s not just the allure of high fashion that you’ll love… everyone’s invited to a lively post show reception, complete with photo booth for selfies with the artists and models!
Put on your red shoes and get your fabulous self to the Wearable Art Show!
