Presented by Indigenous Fashion Projects, a program of the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair Foundation
One of the highlights of the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair each year is Country to Couture – where First Nations textiles and fashion collide in a colourful showcase of wearable art.
Building on the growing textile design movement in remote Indigenous communities, this extremely popular runway event presents innovative collections from Indigenous designers and artists across Australia, as well as unique collaborations between Indigenous communities and well-known Australian labels. Celebrate 18 fashion collections across two different shows with the line up for each show announced in mid-June. Buy a ticket to both and receive a discount.
Country to Couture is a celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander textiles and fashion design and a contemporary way of cultural storytelling and sharing knowledge.
