In October 2018 Erarta Museum will be the first in Russia to present works of art from the World of WearableArt Awards Show. The exhibition will showcase the most extraordinary garments created for the most internationally renowned design competition, World of WearableArt™ (WOW).
For three decades, WOW has been dazzling international audiences and blurring geographical borders as well as the boundaries between fashion and art. The annual WOW Competition attracts the world's leading designers, offering a unique platform that enables them to showcase their creativity without commercial restrictions. Every designer starts with the human form as a blank canvas, creating garments akin to art installations. The artistic vision is naturally paramount; however, it does not rule out practicality: all creations of the contestants in the World of WearableArt™ must be wearable!
