World of WearableArt (WOW) is an internationally recognised[citation needed] design competition, attracting entries from more than 40 countries each year.[1] The stage features everything that is wearable art, as long as it is original and well executed. During the three weeks of the art show, around 60,000 people attend the event in Wellington.[citation needed]

Nelson, New Zealand hosts the World of WearableArt & Classic Cars Museum (WOW) devoted to wearable art and classic car.[2] It opened in October 2001. The museum exhibits garments from the World of WearableArt Awards Show, along with a collection of around 140 classic cars.[citation needed]

World of WearableArt & Classic Cars MuseumEdit

The Museum showcases two very distinct collections that collide in a celebration of design, innovation and wonder.

Where else in the world can you see a stunning selection of more than 60 wearable art garments, alongside more than 140 veteran, vintage and classic cars?

Together the wearable art and collectible cars epitomise the very heart of WOW – exploding the boundaries of design so that creativity and invention can thrive in a world of limitless possibilities. .[citation needed]
