Mother and daughter duo Kelly & Amanda are teaming up to compete in the 2024 World of Wearable Art.  The competition, held in Australia, features artists from all over the world showcasing their elaborate and extraordinary wearable art pieces.

 

Amanda, a returning Art Resident, is an artist and adjunct teacher. Kelly, as her daughter describes her, a sewing maverick.  Using thrifted and scavenged materials the duo was spending nearly three weeks at Azule to brainstorm their design, developing their prototype, and figuring out the logistics.

Competitors create elaborate works of art worn by models that must be both wearable and show-stopping.  The form Kelly & Amanda have landed on for their own project will revolve around the concept of a message in a bottle.  Conceptually they are waking to create a bottle form that contains hundreds of actual messages.  They’ve been hard at work developing the form of the bottle, experimenting with different textiles and boning processes, but they need your help!
