Country to Couture 2023
08 August 2023
Darwin Convention Centre | Darwin NT
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. The annual runway event builds on the growing textile design movement in remote Indigenous communities, and has been presented alongside the annual Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair (DAAF) since 2016.
The high-energy runway presents innovative collections from Indigenous designers and artists across Australia, as well as unique collaborations between Indigenous communities and well-known Australian labels.
Opening show two, Our Heart, Anindilyakwa Arts’ Bush Dye Capsule Collection made its successful debut, resulting in a close-to-sold-out collection over the following weekend. With big thanks to the support of Creative Australia, our bush dye capsule collection will be available to for a last and limited restock in 2024.
