March 8, 2020 the Rossland Council for Arts and Culture and the VISAC Gallery hosted The Art of Adornment, a juried competition, fashion show, exhibition, and gala celebrating International Women’s Day.

In reference to this project, Wearable Art is individually designed pieces of handmade clothing, accessories or jewellery created as fine or expressive art. It is one of a kind original art to be worn on the body. It is using the human body as the canvas, and created with artistic concept in mind.

There were two main categories in this exhibition:

  1. Ensemble: a complete outfit/costume of harmonizing or complementary garments and accessories.
  2. Accessory: an item often used to contribute, in a secondary manner, to an outfit, often used to complete an outfit and chosen to specifically complement the wearer’s look (jewellery, hat, jacket, etc.).
