Wondrous designs for wearable parade

ART will quite literally "come to life" this Saturday when the Wilmar Sugar Wearable Art Parade and judging takes place on the Airlie Beach foreshore.

Wearable art can be sewn, constructed, glued, painted, collaged, riveted, woven and knitted - and just about anything else the entrants' imaginations dream up!

Event organiser Kirsten Orenshaw said wearable art was a growing worldwide phenomenon.

"There really is no limit to what you can create and the materials you can use to make wearable art," she said.

"The theme this year is 'Finding the Reef', which lends itself to wearable art that is really crazy and colourful. We have a fantastic number of entries from juniors to adults - 26 entries in all - and we are looking forward to some really ingenious creations."

The judging for entrants takes place at the PCYC, in Jubilee Pocket, at 9am.

The Wilmar Sugar Wearable Art Parade & Awards will be happening on the Airlie Foreshore at 2pm. Spectators are welcome.
