When fashion and art combine
Common Threads Wearable Art
On Saturday I was lucky enough to witness creative’s who have spent months putting their heart and soul into making wearable, unique and extravagant creations.
The reason? Common Threads Wearable Art competition held at the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre and I’m honoured to announce that I am this year’s ambassador.
Over 90 entrants put their heart and soul into creating a piece of wearable art all vying for the opportunity to have their creation displayed in the showcase on May 7th. 40 of the best entrants will be modelled in a theatre like production drawing a nation wide crowd to the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre.
It’s truly something that has to be seen to be believed. The passion, talent and sheer imagination of these creative’s is spectacular. With entrants from 11 years to 70 years and from all around the world, Common Threads Wearable Art showcase provides an international platform for our talented creative’s right in our own backyard. Here you will see that I was honoured to be able to model Perth artist Louise Wells piece which was made from high-vis t-shirts and fencing wire. Other creations were made from wheel clogs, toilet rolls and air-conditioning insulation.
I will be hosting Common Threads Wearable Art showcase on May 7th at Mandurah Performing Arts Centre. Not just your average runway show, the performance will include professional dance, theatre and music. If you love art, have a passion for fashion or just want to get down and support this fantastic initiative then make sure you put it in your diary, grab some friends and come make a night of it.
Last year’s showcase played out in front of a packed crowd on Mandurah Performing Arts Centre’s main stage so patrons are urged to book early, visit www.manpac.com.au or call 9550 3900.
