Designers and wearable art artists from across the nation are invited to participate in the 2nd Annual Wearable Art Competition & Exhibition, a component of the 2014 North Charleston Arts Festival. Organized and presented by the City of North Charleston Cultural Arts Department and juried by award-winning and nationally exhibiting textile artist, Torreah “Cookie” Washington, this unique opportunity offers emerging and established designers a showcase to exhibit their inspiring designs, wearable art garments and accessories of all styles. Our goal is to present innovative and wearable work of the highest quality and to provide a forum to share our enthusiasm for an exploration of techniques and materials. Wearable art garments in all styles are welcome, including garments, hats, handbags and accessories. Garments for both men and women are encouraged.
