Re­cy­cled fash­ion de­lights and ex­cites

Whitsunday Times - - REEF FESTIVAL -

PRE­PARE to be as­tounded by the unique and in­no­va­tive de­signs on dis­play at this year’s Wil­mar Sugar Wearable Art Pa­rade.

The pa­rade will be held at the fore­shore be­side the Air­lie Creek bridge, near the cen­tral car park, from 1pm on Satur­day, Au­gust 8.

Started by An­nie Lloyd-Lewis in the late 1990s, the wearable art pa­rade was con­tin­ued by Sian Pole, who then handed over the reins to mum and cur- rent or­gan­iser Pam Pole in 2009.

“I’ve loved it be­cause I saw how much plea­sure and how much in­cen­tive it gave to my daugh­ter, and I wanted to see this con­tinue for other stu­dents in the Whit­sun­days,” Mrs Pole said.

Late en­tries are be­ing ac­cepted for the wearable art pa­rade. For more in­for­ma­tion, phone Pam Pole on 0448 870 482 or email pam­pole@hot­mail.com.
