WOW is a phenomenon. The phenomenon of being creative, bold, grandiose. The project is based on international design competition. Designers are developing WOW, making it more innovative, global and worldwide. The project is based on a competition of designers from around the world held in Wellington (New Zealand). The competition presents costumes made of different materials and using different technologies. That is why I am looking forward to visiting the WOW exhibition in the Erarta Museum and share my photos, let them serve as inspiration for you! As well as for me :)
