Country to Couture

One of the highlights of the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair each year is Country to Couture – where First Nations textiles, fashion and art collide to create a colourful showcase of collections from across Australia.

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 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.

Brought to you by the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair Foundation (DAAFF) as part of its Indigenous Fashion Projects, supported by the Northern Territory Government and Country Road.
