The international influence at the WearableArt shows continues to grow.

Of the 164 finalists in this year's Brancott Estate awards show, 16 international entries placed.

They were from Australia, Hong Kong, the United States, China, Taiwan, Mexico and India - and they topped eight of the 15 sections.

For the first time, the same team of designers won both the supreme and runnerup awards. Yuru Ma and Mengyue Wu, 22-year-old friends from Donghua University in Shanghai, won a total of $42,000 in prizes with winner Delight of Light and runnerup Revive.

The sold-out season continues in Wellington until Sunday.
