World of Wearable Art at Peabody Essex Museum

We have all been on an amazing journey together since we launched our Cape Ann Wearable art initiative ten years ago and our runway shows in 2011.  One of our inspirations to keep going was the incredible international success of the World of Wearable Art shows and the Museum in Nelson, New Zealand.  On that note, the seARTS community couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome the upcoming exhibit at the Peabody-Essex Museum featuring many pieces from the permanent collection of that museum.


Working in close collaboration with Doneeca and her team, the looks chosen are as follows and will be displayed on live models (as per our discussion).   Additional details are below.  Congratulations to these artists and also to Redat Davidson of RISD whose look was chosen, but unfortunately the timing did not work out for her to participate.
