Wearable Arts: Digital showcase

We are proud to present the Wearable Arts entries for 2021 for the first time digitally.

In a usual year, our College students would take their work of art to stage in Term 4 and winners would have been presented their prizes during a grand finale at the end of a successful show that would see Elliot Hall packed wall to wall with every seat taken. Last year, students came in small groups during the school day to present their costumes with a combination of fashion and dance making it a fantastic showcase of student-inspired creativity – without an audience but filmed and later shared with their families.

With the uncertainty surrounding gathering restrictions following a prolonged Auckland lockdown affecting our line-up of activities in Term 4, the Performing Arts department made a difficult decision to cancel this year’s Wearable Arts competition. Fortunately, professional photography of all entries was taken before we went into lockdown, therefore, allowing us to showcase the work of our talented students digitally.

There were close to 40 submissions this year with awe-inspiring range of garments across categories. Our student designers have invested significant effort in planning, sourcing, sewing and putting together their costumes, with some spending months preparing them.

We are excited to see these and many more new entries in the 2022 Wearable Arts Show as we hope to be back bigger, better and brighter than before.
