First Born, Melbourne Fashion Week 2018
I was apart of the media crew that captured the First Born fashion show
First Reborn is a celebration of the rebirth of our First Nations culture in a contemporary fashion runway show. ‘First’ representing Australia’s original custodians enriched culture, and ‘Reborn’ the signifier of our ancient culture merging with our present and future world. The event will showcase fashion from remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities utilising old traditional methods like bush dyeing. In the modern world we live in today, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists continue to tell their traditional stories of culture through art, to now including the new age of fabric printing and designs.
Designers: Design Within Country, Kirrikin Australia, Ngali, Ooroo Australia.
