Australian Wearable Art Festival

The extraordinary creative talent of artists from across Australia and the world are set to return to the Sunshine Coast for the Australian Wearable Art Festival.

The 2019 event received an overwhelming positive response with a sold-out show and expressions of interest from artists for the 2020 festival have already doubled on this year to more than 60.  Guests are being encouraged to get their tickets now for this unique artistic showcase. 

Event curator Wendy Roe said the high calibre of the artists, the style of artwork as well as the intimate connection with the audience has been an important part of what makes this festival so intriguing.

“We want the audience to really immerse themselves in the art and see the level of devotion that goes into making the one-of-a-kind pieces– they might even be inspired to create a piece themselves,” Ms Roe said.

“The festival is a fusion of high-end fashion with the sculptural world of art where Gaultier meets Picasso.

The event will have four main categories as part of both the daytime event and evening gala event – which include Avant Garde, Floriana, Trashion and Sustainable. There are also additional prizes for Haute Couture, Headpiece, Emerging Artist and best tertiary and secondary student pieces.
