Yesterday was the final day of the Wearable Art Awards exhibition at Contemporary Art Space Mandurah. The curator of the exhibition followed through with the theme of Drift beautifully. She themed the space with drifting sand dunes and purposefully placed each garment with a warmly lit glow. Many artists took the opportunity to speak about their inspiration, ideas and the construction challenges making their garment. Here are a few of the works.

The 2015 competition was launched at this event. The theme is to be FABRICATION. Lots to think about…it was such a fun process this year, I think I will have to enter in 2015!
No more tea bags though!
