World of WearableArt


Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center
30 W. Dale St.
Colorado Springs, CO 80903

Long before Lady Gaga and Katie Perry’s outlandish attire became red carpet staples, New Zealand’s international fashion, theater, and arts extravaganza was paving the way for off-the-wall couture creations. This traveling exhibit will showcase dozens of the 31-year-old contest’s most provocative designs, such as an intricate lobster-inspired garment complete with oversized claws, antennae, and moving tail. Beyond high fashion, the vestments are true artistic triumphs: Take David Walker’s Lady of the Wood, a facsimile of a 1700s ballgown carved entirely out of mahogany and cherry trees.
