It was amazing to see the WOW designs which we saw at the Awards show last year up close. Absolutely phenomenal the amount of work and fine detail in the garments. Well worth a visit

What a delight! The wearable art is displayed well and allows a close up look at these amazing and creative creations. The classic car collection is equally awesome. Something for everyone! I would visit here again and again if I could.

If you are creative in any way this is a must place to visit. Being able to see the creations close up is amazing and for those interested in cars this is very much worth doing.

Whilst I enjoyed the fabulous Wearable Art creations my husband was able to enjoy the many vintage cars on display. The apparel creation was creative and colourful. The video explained the competition and concept behind it. The exhibits were an explosion of colour, ingenuity and...More
