From Country to Couture celebrates the marriage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander contemporary fine art and high-end fashion. The success of the textile design movement in remote Indigenous communities has led to exciting collaborations with well-known Australian designers. This year, the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair Foundation is proud to present two spectacular shows.
The first show celebrates the Gorman & Mangkaja Arts Collection. It will showcase 40 looks featuring the artwork of artists from Fitzroy Crossing in Western Australia. Gorman is an Australian fashion label that is celebrating 10 years of supporting artists, designers and makers from around the world.
The second show presents the fourth From Country to Couture event, with a showcase of 10 remarkable boutique collections that have been designed and crafted in collaboration with remote community art centres.
