WOW founder Suzie Moncrieff becomes Dame; Russell Brand and Katy Perry divorce


December 30, 2011/23.34

World of Wearable Art (WOW) founder, Suzie Moncrieff, becomes a Dame in the New Zealand New Year honours’ list today.
   Her honour comes on the same day as a similar award for businesswoman Rosanne Meo, and knighthoods for former All Blacks’ coach Graham Henry, former TV chef and Wellington City Missioner Des Britten, Todd Corp. chairman John Todd, and philanthropist Colin Giltrap. Painter and sculptor Ralph Hotere (Te Aupouri) was appointed a member of the Order of New Zealand.
   Moncrieff’s honour comes on the eve of WOW’s 25th anniversary. She started the event to promote wearable arts in Nelson, before it later moved to Wellington. It is a world-class event that attracts international media each year. The Hong Kong Jockey Club plays host to WOW later in January.
   In other news, comedian Russell Brand and singer Katy Perry will divorce, after only one year of marriage.
   Brand filed for divorce on Friday at the Los Angeles Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences.
   They had already spent Christmas apart, not wearing their wedding rings.
