For SNAG’s 2017 Exhibition in Motion we are looking for large-scale wearable pieces that incorporate an element of transformation. The wearer must be able to perform the transformation on the runway with little to no assistance and be as smooth as possible. Building on the success of 2016, we are looking for large-scale work that will stand out on the runway - think in feet not inches! 
Partners, small groups and class proposals are encouraged. 
SNAG membership is required to participate.
For groups of two or more, at least one of the group members needs to be a SNAG member.
