THEME: 9 LIVES
In honor of this year’s 9th Annual Wearable Arts Runway Show, the production’s theme- ‘9 Lives’- challenges all designers to ask themselves the questions: Have I ever wanted to live a different life? Have an alter ego? What’s the side of me or my personality that people don’t see? Whatever your answer, ‘9 Lives’ invites you to showcase the story of your alternative persona!
