For the past sixteen years (plus 2 years OFF for viral bad behavior!), wearable ART designers have shocked, defied and delighted audiences with fashions that arrest the senses and exceed imagination! DFAC’s Wearable Art Designers have gone on to receive international acclaim at New Zealand’s renowned World of Wearable Art Show with fashions incorporating kinetic illusion, unlikely materials, pop-culture mythologies + outrageous theatre. This runway show is a state-of-the-art production and we seek designers of comparable excellence!
It’s hard to believe that it was SIXTEEN years ago that The Dunedin Fine Art Center’s (DFAC) incredibly successful wearable ART fashion show made its debut before its first SOLD-OUT crowd. Now in its 17th year, this always surprising event promises to continue to be the standard against which all other art/fashion shows are measured.
