WOWed by India
Wellington’s annual Montana Wearable Arts Awards continues to entice greater number of international participants to enter in the “ultimate arts competition”. A recent preview of this year’s competitors saw the final design entries from India which will participate in the 2008 extravaganza. In 2007, 12 Indian designs were showcased, with a number winning in their categories. Creator and director of World of Wearable Arts (WOW), Suzie Moncrieff says, “I can see that many fashion students in India are very talented and are ready to make their mark internationally.” The Awards’ nine two-hour shows will be held in September and October.
