Presented by Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair Foundation
A celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander textiles and fashion design, Country to Couture is a contemporary way of cultural storytelling and sharing knowledge. It’s where First Nations textiles and fashion collide in a colourful showcase of wearable art. The event builds on the growing textile design movement in remote Indigenous communities and has been showcased alongside the annual Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair (DAAF) since 2016.
The high energy runway show presents innovative collections from Indigenous designers and artists across Australia, as well as unique collaborations between Indigenous communities and well-known Australian labels.
