More Info

See a stunning runway show, showcasing a new collection of art and wearable art by Darwin artist ILMA ALI.

The artworks, inspired by the beauty and wonder hidden in the coral reefs of the Pacific, are re-imagined into garments by
an exciting line-up of fashion designers, including BLACK CAT COUTURE, OSSOM Australia and FREYZZY Design.

Featuring a diverse range of models from Darwin’s migrant community, Flowers Underwater is a celebration of women in all their glory and grace. Held at a uniquely Darwin venue, the event invites you to immerse yourself in a sea of vibrant tropical colours pulled straight from the ocean and poured into this collection with local design and talent. Join us in the deep end for a journey beneath the surface.
