Wowzzzeee unites people through the making and wearing of onesies! Become part of the wowzzzeee universe with a wowzzzeee of your own – a onesie with the WOW factor! Collaborating with artist / fashion designer Adele Varcoe for the Festival of Live Art (FOLA) and the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival (VAMFF), MADA Senior Lecturer Dr Matthew Bird has designed a series of large and immersive installations “to experience Adele’s oneness in heightened ways.”
During the Festival of Live Art, 500 wowzzeees will be released into the world. Racks full of wowzzzeees sized from baby to adult will accumulate around an inspired and dedicated wowzzzeee making team. These intrepid treadlers will sweat to the humming beat of their machines, in order to keep up with demand throughout the Festival.
These must-have wowzzzeees come at a price, and wearers will be encouraged to keep them on until they go to bed that night. Be part of the pack and contribute to a common goal – join us to create the work, become the work, and take the wowzzzeee stance into the world!
