Judging Day

Hairspray, glitter, slight nervousness, lots of excitement – these are the elements of Judging Day for the Common Threads Wearable Art Competition which was held on Saturday. I had the great pleasure of being a wardrobe assistant. This meant I dresses two other models as well as my own for designers who were not able to attend the day. It also meant that I got to see many of the amazing garments. Here are a few stunning detail shots.

Forty garments were judged in the chosen category: Avant Garde, Sculptural, Upcycling or Gillan Peeble Youth Award. Designers dress their model, amazing hair styles are created and make up is applied to complement the garment theme. A professional photography shoot and then a closed judging session followed by feedback to the designer complete the process. All this within a 1 1/2 hour time slot per garment!
