2022 WOW Show Highlights Reel
If you’re unfamiliar with World of WearableArt, it has best been described as part Cirque du Soleil, part Broadway play, and part avant-garde couture show – there is nothing else like it on earth.
WOW weaves together spectacular storytelling theatrics with lavish catwalk magic and hypnotic acrobatics. A carefully composed soundtrack provides a gripping backbone as the show flows through a series of themed sections, with extraordinary works of wearable art taking centre stage.
It truly is one of the greatest journeys you will ever experience. Check out the 2022 WOW Show Highlights Reel to discover more.
