Pimp My Jacket is for you! It's a fun wearable arts competition and public runway show that's open to everyone. Entries close on Friday 20 July with the event, PMJ Runway Show, to be held on Thursday 16 August as the opening event for Hutt Winter Festival.
Just take a plain black jacket (supplied by us or yourself) and then transform it however you'd like! Let your imagination run wild with your wearable 'canvas'.
PMJ is all about bringing people together through creativity and celebrating the value of creativity to support mental wellbeing.
There are three categories to choose from and great prizes, including a $500 First Prize in each category.
Creative: Anything goes in this category!
Nature: Show us what inspires you in the natural world.
Mayoral: Design a jacket for the Lower Hutt or Upper Hutt Mayor for them to wear to functions. Your inspiration is the Hutt Valley. The Mayors will judge this and have the opportunity of wearing it for a year. For the Mayoral Category please use a 128cm jacket for the Lower Hutt Mayor and 106cm for the Upper Hutt Mayor.
PMJ is proudly Hutt Valley based and open to anyone in New Zealand. All entries submitted will be eligible to be displayed at our public runway show, which is the opening event for the 2018 Hutt Winter Festival
All jackets must be received on or before FRIDAY 20 JULY
