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]

The WOW Gallery shows the attending garments of the World of WearableArt Awards Show, a two-hour performance spectacle held annually in Wellington during September/October. The show was started in Nelson in 1987 by Suzie Moncrieff.[citation needed]
