Presented by Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair Foundation as part of its Indigenous Fashion Projects
First Nations textiles, fashion and art collide to create a colourful showcase of collections from across Australia at Country to Couture.
One of the highlights of the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair each year this celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander textiles and fashion design is a contemporary way of cultural storytelling and sharing knowledge. The event builds on the growing textile design movement in remote Indigenous communities and has been presented alongside the DAAF since 2016.
Two high-energy runway sessions present innovative collections from Indigenous designers and artists across Australia, as well as unique collaborations between Indigenous communities and well-known Australian labels.
