INTERVIEW WITH ADAM

"Adam McAlavey takes the concept of wearable art a step further than simply designing a garment to fit a body. Not only do his works incorporate the presence and absence of his own breath, but they’re also part of his journey to reclaim his body from asthma."

WINNER - PERFORMANCE ART SECTION 2016

"Queen Angel was never designed to walk in – it was for a still performance with a vacuumed top – but McAlavey adapted it for the show, creating a jaunty, swinging lower half that drew gasps and claps from the audience when it debuted at the World of WearableArt™ Awards on September 22."
