-- The sixth annual Wearable’s Apparel Design Awards is a contest where decorators and distributors submit their best apparel and accessories in 12 different categories. Finalists were selected by the Wearables Magazine editorial team, judging the products on design appeal, wearability, performance attributes and look. Using the same criteria, the readers of Wearables magazine then voted on the finalists to determine the winner in each category. Over 6000 votes were cast.
