Watch: Liz Gunn Talks To Alison Bruce About WOW


The first rounds of judging for WOW 2017 are currently underway.

WOW is the acronym for World Of Wearable Art, which was the much loved creation- birthed in Aoteoroa in 1987 – of Dame Suzie Moncrieff.
It’s an annual design competition which now  reaches around the globe and attracts hundreds of entries from around New Zealand and over 40 other countries .

The brief for a WOW outfit is that it must sit at the cutting edge of fashion, art, design, costume, and theatre, and combine all those elements in a wearable entry.

This year, WOW’s Creative Director Kip Chapman has invited Alison Bruce, an award-winning Kiwi actor, to lead the audience through the fantasical and wondrous Clothing World of the annual WOW theatrical production, to be held in mid-September in Wellington.

Alison Bruce joined Liz Gunn in the 13th Floor Studio to discuss her upcoming and still-evolving contribution to this year’s WOW and also her long and fruitful acting career thus far.
