Big news for WOW (World of WearableArt) today.
It will be the first offshore performance for WOW which is also taking New Zealand adult dancers and models, including Wellington model Larissa Lal-Ponini (former Dominion Post Fashion magazine cover girl) to Hong Kong to be in the show.
WOW is currently on tour in New Zealand too, but in a different capacity. Its WOW Icons on Tour exhibition is part of the nationwide REAL New Zealand Festival, with iconic World Of WearableArt garments currently on display in eight regions around New Zealand until October 31.
These eight garments, pictured, can be found at the following venues:
