Indigenous Fashion Projects’ events are a vital element of our support of the growth of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander textile and fashion practice and enterprise.
IFP events range from art to high fashion, from community to the big stage and from industry to the consumer.
These events are important for story telling and culture sharing as well as the showcasing and promotion of work and products.
Through our events we support a wide variety of the roles that work together to bring an event to life. Models, designers, photographers, film makers, stylists, musicians, set builders and others are employed, supported and mentored.
