The World of WearableArt Awards is a design competition held in Wellington, New Zealand every September. It attracts hundreds of entries from around the world, all competing for a share of $165 000 in prize money and mentorships with renowned design companies.

We saw some of the winners from past years at a travelling exhibition at the Bishop Museum in Honolulu;  weird and wonderful garments constructed from textiles, jewellery, found objects and other unusual media in a futuristic display of creativity and innovation.

My favourite was this delicate gown, fashioned from wafer thin layers of wood.
