Wearable Art Parade – Whitsunday Reef Festival

When: Saturday, 13th August 2016

Where: Airlie Beach Foreshore

Wearable Art Parade – Whitsunday Reef Festival

Everything from metal and recycled objects to silk and rubber will be artfully reconfigured into dramatic outfits as part of the Whitsunday Reef Festival Wearable Art Competition.

Sponsored my Wilmar Sugar, the competition and fashion parade are one of the highlights of the festival for many aspiring local fashion designers, as well as the hundreds of people who turn out to support the event.

Event organiser Kirsten Orenshaw said wearable art was a growing worldwide phenomenon.

“Wearable art can be sewn, constructed, glued, painted, collaged, riveted, woven and knitted – and just about anything else your imagination dreams up!” she said.

“There really is no limit to what you can create and the materials you can use to make it. Last year’s entries included everything from clocks to newspapers incorporated into the outfits.”

The theme this year is “Finding the Reef”, which can be interpreted in a number of different ways.
