With the first show done, Wearable Art shares theme for next year

The show will mark the fashion extravaganza’s 20th anniversary

Wearable Art 2019 is only half over, but organizers are already looking ahead to 2020.

To close out the Saturday night show of Wearable Art: Tail Wind the theme for the next edition of the annual Juneau fashion extravaganza was announced, and it is Joie de Vivre.

The French phrase is typically used to describe someone with an enjoyment of life.

Sunday’s show will also feature some special announcements — winners of Juror’s Awards.
