Awards

Saturday 28 October, 5pm

Presented by Kate Hawkesby, this TV ONE special brings you the best of this year’s Montana World of WearableArt Awards – an amazing spectacle of dance, theatre, lighting, music and, most importantly, art.

The show consists of seven categories: South Pacific, Children, Open, Illumination Illusion, Avant Garde, Shape It and the Bizarre Bra category.

World of WearableArt encourages designers to showcase their own personal originality and creativity as they produce garments that encompass the essence of WOW – to take art off the wall and onto the moving body. Garments need to be completely original, have impact from the stage, be impressive up close and they must also possess the all important “wow” factor.

Host Kate Hawkesby was impressed with the skill and creativity of this year’s designs.

“Each year the designs and creations seem to get wackier and more creative. It’s a visual symphony and I am always blown away at the depth of talent on display in this show.”
