Artists, models, makeup artists, choreographers and dancers are among those needed for a month-long show in Ōrewa focused on wearable art.
All these creative people, and more, are needed for Estuary Arts Centre’s Wear Your Art Out exhibition and fashion show, which starts in July. It will also include workshops and artist talks.
It is six years since the centre held its first Artful Fashion show and manager Kim Boyd says this one is an opportunity to involve young talent.
The finale will be two live catwalk performances to be held at HBC Youth Centre on Saturday, August 6. The show is a fundraiser to enable improvements to one of Estuary Arts Centre’s studios.
“We are calling all young fashion designers to enter their work (past or new work) and also looking for young models to take part,” Kim says. “It’s a great platform for young designers to showcase their talent, while encouraging the use of recycled materials and upcycling,” she says.
Garments by World of Wearable Arts award winners Beatrice Carlson and Philippa Stitchbury are already confirmed to be part of the show.
Performers such as musicians and dancers are also needed and the show will also include body art, burlesque/drag and prizes for the best dressed audience members.
