Broadcast live @indigenousfashionprojects on Facebook
7pm AEST (5.30pm ACST) on Friday, 22 January 2021
An annual showcase of Indigenous textiles and fashion design.
Supported by the Northern Territory Government via NT Major Events and iconic Australian lifestyle brand Country Road, Country to Couture celebrates the marriage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander contemporary fine art and high-end fashion.
The success of the textile design movement in remote Indigenous communities has led to innovative fashion collections and exciting collaborations with well known Australian designers, which have been showcased in the Country to Couture event alongside the annual Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair (DAAF) since 2016.
