Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

One of the most interesting cultural phenomena in New Zealand over the past 15 years has been the spectacular success of the World of Wearable Art. This is an annual competition and award show that explores the intersection between fashion and art, through a genre popularly known as wearable art. This unique event has encouraged an explosion of creative activity, inspiring a wide range of fashion designers, artists, costume makers and other craft artists from all over the world to participate. The garments are constructed from an extraordinary array of materials - car parts, wood shavings, zips, silk, potato chip packets, seaweed, slices of toast, old telephone parts, paper clips, corrugated iron, gloves, feathers - the list is endless. The book features photographs of the wearable garments from the last 15 years of the World of Wearable Art awards and shows. It is the only book widely available in New Zealand on this subject.
