The World of Wearable Arts extravaganza draws closer every day, as can be seen with the excellent Kirks display that Tom at Wellurban was so kind to photograph and upload to flickr.

The show itself starts tomorrow (Fri 23 Sep), with the Awards evening at the Queens Wharf Event Centre, and subsequent shows on the 24th, 25th, 29th, 30th of September, and 1st and 2nd of October. All Shows start at 8:00pm except for the Sunday Night performances which start at 6:00pm and Saturday 1st of October 2005 has a 1pm and an 8pm Show. Also note that ALL PRESALE TICKETS are SOLD OUT, but there limited on-the-day sales available. Head over to the WoW Ticketing page for more info. Everyone’s favourite ticketing company – Ticketek – is involved, just so you know.

And for those of you downtown today, pop into the Air New Zealand centre on Lambton Quay at about 12:30pm, to see ex-Wellington pop-singer about town, and current-NZ Idol judge Jackie Clarke modelling an outfit from the upcoming event. (hat-tip, nzidol blog)
