Bare Southern Belle - Erin Tomlinson, NZ

Once again Wellington is hosting the fantastical WOW show, an amazing experience for thousands of visitors. The show is vivid, exciting and a total theatrical extravaganza of colour, music, art and dance, showcasing ‘wearable art’ created worldwide. The brief video gives you a tantalising glimpse – take a look we can assure you the whole show would blow you away, Mum knows, she went!

Check our Wearable Arts WOW video

The streets of Wellington have been abuzz with people visiting from all over the globe, and as well as a strong home representation, some of the finest entries seen recently are from the Far East and the USA.  Each art work is a statement of artistic integrity and intention of the highest standard.

If you are not familiar with the World of Wearable Arts, the curated wearable art is set like gems within a superb piece of musical theatre. The show has ‘set pieces’ that correspond with the artistic sections designers are given as their brief e.g. ‘Children’ ‘South Pacific’ ‘Bizarre Bra’ or ‘Avant Garde’. the music, presentation and style changes with each section; the stage, which juts out into the middle of the auditorium is used to full effect as dancers spin and twirl around the models displaying the garments.

You cats at Team Dash are doing some awesome give aways. Oh, just heard from Brian and his Dad, J Lo is getting pretty depressed confined to a cage and is desperate for a home…she may not require additional surgery (YEA). But we still need to get her vet costs covered so we are going to support you in promoting her fund raiser….count us in with Team Dash every time!

      We are both thrilled and very proud we had someone bid for our jewellery. Way over any price we expected. Every cent went to J-Lo direct. Peole CAN be kind, VERY kind, sometimes.
