The Wearable Art Show

The Wearable Art Show at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture is an annual free, public event organized by the Fibers & Material Studies Program that features student work across multiple disciplines and serves as a culmination of semester-long interdisciplinary planning, thought, creation and collaboration.

It is much more than an ordinary fashion show. “These objects [in the Wearable Art Show] transcend fashion,” said Paige Fetchen, adjunct faculty in Tyler’s Fibers & Material Studies Program and Wearable Art Show program coordinator. “Each year, this show encourages students to think performatively and to create art that transforms the ordinary silhouette.”
