Connection To Country
As part of Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival 2019 the Global Indigenous Runway – ‘Connection to Country’ celebrates the creativity of top Indigenous fashion designers from around the world. Featuring delicate hand-woven and printed fabrics and incredible haute-couture pieces, the runway presents a modern interpretation of cultural identity among global Indigenous peoples.
From the etchings of tribal totems to the raw natural beauty of homelands the runway’s theme ‘Connection to Country’ is reflected in each of the designer’s collections.
More than just another runway, the designers will collaborate with artists and musicians to deliver a unique indigenous cultural spectacular honouring their fashion stories. Just as the fashion hits the runway, so too will 50 Indigenous young people model the looks for the first time.
