The FOURTEENTH Year for wearable ART Promises a Steamy end to Summer!
It’s hard to believe that it was THIRTEEN years ago that The Dunedin Fine Art Center’s incredibly successful wearable ART fashion show, made its debut before its first SOLD-OUT crowd. Now in its 14th year, this always surprising event promises to continue to be the standard against which all other art/fashion shows are measured.
wearable ART was indeed one of the first in the area 13 years ago to showcase a growing contingent of artists working in fashion related ways. It continues that tradition in its fourteenth year featuring runway presentations by Irina Bilka, Mark Byrne, Melissa Dolce, the Garden Fairies + Cosmic Cotton Candy Collaborators, Julian Hartzog, Johnny Hunt, Kikimora Studio, Dacota Maphis, and Lina Teixeira. All of this is crowned by the incredible hair & make-up artistry of Salon GW.
“We’re looking for number fourteen to raise the bar once again, if that is possible,” mused Linda Hamilton, DFAC’s Development Director. “We’ve broadened our geographic draw, with Kikimora up from Miami and are looking forward to a special show,” she concluded.
Great music has always been a hallmark of ALL DFAC events. This year’s wearable ART will be no exception. Both the the Pre-Glow and After-Glow parties will feature that incredible garage band for “indiscriminate grownups,” the Lint Rollers (featuring the Rolling Lint Revue)!
FAN-dango! – 10,00 Fans Can’t Be Wrong is a celebratory exhibit shown in conjunction with Wearable Art 14 that invited the arts community to create decorative hand FANS in the media of their choice. People’s Choice Awards will be determined by popular vote!
This is a huge event and takes two facilities to pull it off! Tickets are available for every budget!
This year, those prized seats go for $60, $80, $100 or $125, and go on sale July 16th to the public. If past years are any indication, you’ll want to score your tickets early, while they’re still available.
Back by popular demand, is the PARTY TICKET for $15 this year. Enjoy the pre and post parties with this indoor standing-room option…. enjoy all the music and fun and catch the runway show on a HUGE video monitor… Now, you have NO excuse for missing the art party of the year!
wearable ART fourteen – August 25th, 2018 at 7:00 pm Pre-Glow– Runway Show starts at 8:00 pm. After-Glow to follow.
