The Wearable Art Show features unique creative works by Canadian artists with wearable art the exclusive focus of what is exhibited and sold at the annual event. The intention of the show is to support and build a sense of community among professional Canadian artists working in the field of wearable art. Featured artists appear in the show each year on an invitational basis. In 2010, the show was incorporated as a not-for-profit in Ontario under the legal name of Just for Us Wearable Art Originals.
Prior to 2013, The Wearable Art Show was known as Just for Us Originals: The Wearable Art Show. The event was originally conceived by artwear designer Bonnie Glass. Based on her own experiences as a professional artist, Bonnie was convinced that artists like her needed a new venue through which to exhibit and sell their works. The first show was held on March 24, 2007 at The Old Mill Inn in Toronto. After its first two years at the Old Mill, the show became a Fall event, held in Oakville for one year, and then at the Living Arts Centre in Mississauga for several more. In 2013, The Wearable Art Show returns to Toronto.
