Christchurch designer Mark Crocker went to the kitchen for inspiration for this eye-catching and possibly eye-damaging entry in the World of WearableArt (WOW) Awards Show.

Crocker's Flying Bustresses entry, in the Bizarre Bra Section, was made from cooking and dining utensils, leather belts and table mats.

The garment included eight spoons, two butter knives, two corkscrews and salt and pepper shakers.

Crocker's creation was one of a record 191 pieces chosen for the show in Wellington.

Nearly a third of the show's entries came from international designers, including garments from India.

Entrants compete for $100,000 in prizes, including the Supreme Award and the Weta Award, selected by Oscar-winning designer Sir Richard Taylor. Award winners will be announced at a ceremony tonight.
