Sustainable Art Challenge Awards Ceremony

July 25 @ 3:30 pm - 6:00 pm


The Sustainable Wearable Art Challenge is back for 2021!

All entries will be walking down the catwalk at 3:30pm on Sunday 25th of July at Baycourt.

Bring along your friends and family to watch a night of sustainable fashion and see the Awards Ceremony for all competitions.

The Sustainable Art Challenge promotes awareness of Environmental Issues through Art.

For 2021 we are offering a slightly new model.  The kaupapa of The Sustainable Art Challenge is the same but we have a slightly new format and brief.  You will still rock your wearable art and designs down the runway to showcase and celebrate your work with your friends and family.

Indulge your creativity with a combination of the following: Sustainability, Innovation, Creativity, Wearability, Stage Impact, Functionality.

There are two categories to enter:

Want to flex your creative muscles and participate in a fashion show?
Enter this competition and create a wearable art masterpiece from a pack of materials provided by the ReMaker Space and Envirohub.
You MUST use at least 75% of this pack. You can also use “found” materials such as items that were otherwise considered trash or you bought from an op shop. The materials do not have to be soft materials, this can be anything you already own that could be transformed into wearable art.
The only rule is that you can’t buy ANY materials new.
All creations need to be dropped off at the ReMaker Space (at Our Place, 91 Willow Street) by Friday 2pm 23rd of July for pre-judging.
Prizes will be awarded for the most creative group and single entries, with top prizes for ingenuity.
For the full brief and to register, see the link below.
Curate, Style and upcycle an outfit from second hand clothing. Use your design eye to create an exciting, fresh and modern look out of rescued resources sourced from the the ReMaker Space, Tauranga. You can purchase other second hand accessories to compliment your look.
This is not a wearable art competition, this is a fashion competition.
You are able to sew, cut and embellish your garment but this may not be necessary. We are looking for creative and intelligent styling and repurposing of existing garments.
Prizes will be awarded to the most inventive and thoughtful upcycling and styling of garments.
You MUST collect your second hand items from the ReMaker Space at 2pm on Thursday 22nd of July and submit to the ReMaker space at 2pm on Saturday the 24th of July.
There is an opportunity to upcycle you garments at the ReMaker Space on Friday between 10:00am and 3:30pm to use their equipment if you require it.
You must arrive at the BayCourt on Sunday 25th of July with a model to show at the Awards Ceremony and Fashion Show.
