WearableArt set to WOW

Auckland Museum will be dressed up at night in magnificent colours to celebrate the opening of the World of WearableArt exhibition this weekend.

The special exhibition, which opens on November 21, runs until March 22 (2015) before embarking on a world tour.

The exhibition showcases 32 World of WearableArt (WOW) garments selected from the portfolio of competition winners from over the past decade. It will provide visitors an opportunity to experience the magic up close, and learn about the designers who spend hundreds of hours creating the wearable works of art and the production team behind the shows.

The Museum, with the support from MiNDFOOD Style, will also host two after-hours Short Talks in 2015 where experts will share stories of design and talk about the key accessories that complete the look from outlandish shoes and eye-catching jewellery.

What’s On: Lunch with Trelise Cooper

Find a fabulous frock and help find a cure is the tag line for a very special lunch with designer Dame Trelise Cooper at Soul Bar & Bistro on November 19 from 12pm to 2pm.

An afternoon of fashion, food and champagne, guests will be greeted with a glass of chilled Mumm Cordon Rouge Champagne, followed by a three-course lunch and a fashion show of Cooper’s spring/summer 2015 collections, as well as take away a goodie bag.

Tickets to the event are $95 each, $20 of which will be donated to help find a cure for breast cancer.
