CALL for ENTRIES: Wearable Expressions

2016 September 26

You don’t have to wear a coconut brassiere to make food wearable. Coconut fiber, banana silk & pineapple leather are being used to create the latest and most fashionable textiles.  So, if Gaga’s meat dress isn’t your groove, try banana silk.  The next Call wants the wearable version of your art–from clothing to jewelry, but it doesn’t have to be edible. (Brownie points from me if it is, though.)  So, make it work…

Check out this Call for Entries from Palos Verdes Art Center (Rancho Palos Verdes, CA) for Wearable Expressions. $3000 EACH for 1st Place in 3 Categories.  Take a look…
