First Nations Fashion: Walking in Two Worlds
Celebrating talent from across Australia, this fashion show highlights contemporary garments and textiles by First Nations designers.
Couldn't make it to Australian Fashion Week this year? Keen to see one of the event's standout shows? Eager to celebrate and support First Nations talent wherever you can, including in the sartorial sphere? Then First Nations Fashion: Walking in Two Worlds is your must-attend part of Brisbane Festival 2021.
As overseen by multicultural Australian artist Grace Lillian Lee, this runway show highlights contemporary garments and textiles by First Nations designers — giving Indigenous fashion and design a stunning showcase, complete with talent from across the nation, 20 local models, and live music from hip hop artist Kaylah Truth.
Dance and film are also part of the event, although you'll be dazzled by the outfits on display, naturally. Brisbane Festival is hosting two sessions on Sunday, September 5, so you can either end your weekend with an afternoon stint of First Nations fashion at 4pm, or make a night of it at 7.30pm.
