Fashion with a difference via cloud experience in 2021
The Ag Artwear Competition has become a popular feature at Agfest. Garments are made by recycling farm yard junk into wearable art forms. Emphasis is on garments that are totally made from items found on farms, with no pre-made items allowed.
The annual creative Ag Artwear Competition moved to the cloud in 2020 and will again be a cloud experience in 2021 with the public deciding the winner by a public vote. The winner will take home a $100 cash prize and a Rural Youth Tasmania merchandise pack.
Need inspiration ? The 2020 winner, Molly Carter from Don College is shown below wearing her creative masterpiece.
Garment Materials: Hessian Bags, Dried Heirloom Corn Kernels, Dried Dwarf Beans, Shredded Corn Husks, Corn Silk Tassels, Gourd and Silage Plastic Wrap.
Garment Inspiration: Designers inspiration for the garment reflects the variety of local crops and their unlimited creative potential. The multi coloured heirloom corn kernels inspired the designer to embellish the dress to imitate beading. The designer also used dried corn cobs, sliced thinly to add interest. The shoulder decoration is a combination of arranged dried drawn beans, shredded corn husks, corn silk and a gourd. To add glamour, silage wrap was used to create a train.
