Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS -

A hunt­ing-in­spired out­fit won crowds over at the sold-out Art2Wear show in Ar­row­town.

The Wal­lace & Gibbs Art2Wear fash­ion show, held as part of the Ar­row­town Au­tumn Fes­ti­val, at­tracted 22 en­tries from de­sign­ers, who could com­pete in the fol­low­ing cat­e­gories: Hats off to Ar­row­town, Cel­e­bra­tion, Four Sea­sons and New Zealand Cul­ture.

Art2Wear chair­woman Sue An­der­son said Jennifer Ca­vanagh’s en­try The Hunter Games won the People’s Choice Award on Fri­day and Satur­day nights, and won the New Zealand Cul­ture cat­e­gory.

‘‘It was a very suc­cess­ful evening on both nights. We were grate­ful to have Frankie Stevens as com­pere. He did a pro­fes­sional job and lifted the whole show to an­other level.’’

En­ter­tain­ment by 12-year-old Harry Hughes, of Wanaka, also went down well with the crowd. Judges com­mented on the high stan­dard and qual­ity of en­tries this year.
