Our favourite time of year is just around the corner, and we’re calling out to our community to once again be part of our August events! 

We have two ways to get involved – with a Model call out for the iconic Country to Couture runway, and a Volunteer call out to work across all three events: Country to Couture, the National Indigenous Fashion Awards, and the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair. Each year our community of models and volunteers are a key part of the DAAF Foundation family – we simply couldn’t conduct our events without you.

No experience is necessary, so if you are interested – or know someone who may be keen, please apply and share the news!

Our iconic ‘Country to Couture’ fashion show is back and we’d love to invite you to be a part of it! Now in its 7th year, the 2022 showcase will take place at the Darwin Convention Centre on Aug 2. As always, it will be a celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander contemporary fine art, high-end fashion, and the diversity of Australian Indigenous design.

We are welcoming people from across our community to apply to become one of the Country to Couture models in this special showcase on Larrakia Country! No experience needed! Models must be 16 years or over.

Applications close 5pm ACST, Monday, 18 July 2022
