Call for Submissions
Deadline for proposals: Sat 31 Aug 2013

The Niagara Artists Centre seeks creations that transform the human body through the imagination. STRUTT is NOT a fashion show. It is a WEARABLE ART SHOW. The selection committee will not consider ‘fashion forward’ clothing. They are seeking wearable art that can be performed on the runway, not modelled. They are looking for pieces that astound audiences and push boundaries. STRUTT is a challenge to create evocative, fantastic, and one-of-a-kind works of art for the human body.

Proposals for the 14th STRUTT Wearable Art Runway Show are now being accepted!
