Eye on Nature Wearable Arts
June 2023 | Due Drop Events Centre, Manukau
The search is on for Auckland’s most promising, environmentally-conscious young artists and designers!
Eye on Nature Wearable Arts is an annual competition for Auckland primary and secondary school students, run by the Beautification Trust. Students are challenged to create eco-friendly wearable art around the Eye on Nature theme, with $3,500 in cash awarded to the winning schools.
The garments are judged at the Eye on Nature Wearable Arts Fashion Show, held at the Vodafone Events Centre in June. The showcase gives tamariki and rangatahi the exciting experience of modelling their eco-friendly creations on a fashion runway in front of a live audience!
