28 September 2010

Missed out on a Montana World of WearableArt Awards Show ticket this year? You can still see some of the action for free this Sunday (3 October), when WOW designers will race against time, and each other, to create a garment out of limited materials.

Called 'Get Set Create', the Wellington City Council event at Te Papa will be hosted by comedian Te Radar and includes live music by Beyonsemble. It kicks off at 2.00pm and finishes at around 4.00pm.

Materials include things like paper, fabric, ice block sticks, wire and foam.

Designers have about an hour to create something wearable in time to be modelled by WOW models. The winner will receive Montana champagne and a dinner for two at Hippopotamus restaurant.

Designers are not the only ones who'll get prizes on the day. If you go along, you could win some of our spot prizes including WOW goodie-bags and family passes to Zealandia.

The Montana World of WearableArt Awards Show runs until Sunday 3 October.
