Artistic vision takes flight

by Andy Bryenton

The 2019 Dargaville Wearable Arts entrants have set the bar high for those who will follow in 2020, with an array of creative and visually imposing artworks taking to the catwalk during two days and three well-attended shows. For the first time, one designer has taken home the trophies for the Avant Garde, People’s Choice Award and Supreme Award simultaneously; Dandelion Wishes, created by Jackie Butterworth and modelled by Ruby Carey. A photo essay of the event makes up the centre spread of today’s Kaipara Lifestyler.
