One of the highlights of the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair (DAAF) each year is Country to Couture – where First Nations textiles and fashion collide in a colourful showcase of wearable art.
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 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 presents innovative collections from Indigenous designers and artists across Australia, as well as unique collaborations between Indigenous communities and well-known Australian labels.
Country to Couture is brought to you by the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair Foundation (DAAFF) as part of Indigenous Fashion Projects, and is supported by the Northern Territory Government via NT Major Events, and iconic Australian lifestyle brand Country Road.
Celebrate 18 fashion collections across two different shows with the line up for each show announced in mid-June. Buy a ticket to both and receive a discount.
Runway 1 – Tuesday 2 August 6:30pm
