About the 2011 Show
Inspired by the WOW event in New Zealand, Cape Ann aspires to build on this show bi-annually to be a focal point for Wearable Arts all points north.The 2011 event was held at the Bass Rocks Golf Club and featured a runway show with both professional models from Mobius Wearable Art Runway Show and Rising Design of Boston and local Cape Ann designers and models.
“The success of this show and the multiple requests to bring it back again was exciting for all involved. What’s wonderful about wearable art is that you don’t have to be a fashionista to create it or enjoy it – it surprises and delights audiences everywhere. Cape Ann should have at least one ‘destination’ arts event and we hope this will be at the top of the list for years to come!” - Jacqueline Ganim-DeFalco – Chair of Celebrate Wearable Art!
