The Wonderful, Weird, and Downright Wacky World of WearableArt 2014 Awards

It’s no recent revelation that fashion is art, but the annual World of WearableArt Awards are next-level stuff. The theatrical two-hour show, which fitting abbreviates as ‘WOW’, took place in Wellington, New Zealand, on Friday, September 26, with a mix of artistic installations adorning models on the TSB Bank Arena stage.

The aim of the game is to take art off the wall and exhibit on the human body, something the kooky Anna Dello Russo and, well, any fashionista whose street style wants to be snapped, is no stranger to. The size and stature of some works could make toilet breaks especially difficult though. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
