Think QT Wellington and art, design, curiosities and a dash of the absurd spring to mind. With the World of WearableArt® (WOW®) spectacular arriving in Wellington towards the end of September, it’s of little surprise QT Wellington is closely connected to this unmissable event.
With its passion and support of art and design, WOW® has partnered with QT Wellington to bring an exclusive display of four original wearable art pieces to the hotel for the duration of the WOW® Awards Show season, 26 September to 13 October 2019.
The four garments on display during WOW® will be the 2014 Supreme WOW® Award winner Poly Nation by New Zealand designer Kate MacKenzie. This garment will be accompanied by Something Wicked This Way Comes by Wellington designer Eve Gilliland, Feminine Mettle by Frank Strunk III, United States, and She Only Sees With Mirrors by Rodney Leong, New Zealand. These designs will be easily accessible for viewing in the Long Gallery by the porte cochere and inside the hotel lobby area.
If you can’t make it to Wellington for WOW®, you don’t need to miss out! Several of US designer Julian Hartzog’s garments will move into the Long Gallery (after this year’s show is over) including Come Fly With Me, Like Nothing I’ve Ever Seen Before, Starship Girl and Girls in Ribbons. Hartzog’s Like Nothing I’ve Ever Seen Before won the 2017 International Design Award: Americas.
To further indulge your love of art and design, treat yourself to a stay in one of QT Wellington’s Gallery four rooms—each room is unique in its design with its very own bespoke artwork from 19 local artists. To find out more and to book go to qtwellington.com
