Australian Indigenous Fashion Week

Board 1

  • Who is AIFW (Australian Indigenous Fashion Week)?: AIFW is a fresh and exciting new event that aims to showcase and support the design talents of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders from across Australia.
  • What’s the inspiration: As the fashion industry yearns for authenticity, AIFW answers the call by introducing to the fashion world a new unique and fresh perspective.  AIFW is set to be a permanent fixture during the Australian fashion calendar and will focus on showcasing a diverse range of traditional & contemporary designs from emerging designers as well as notable industry names.

  • Why it’s relevant:  With the industry craving authenticity there is definitely no better source that ensures an abundant amount of fresh and creative energy than with the Aboriginal & Pasifika Fashion industry.  The ability to have such an international platform such as Australian Fashion Week is so important in launching this much needed voice.  I don’t know about you but after a few seasons at the tents and seeing essentially the same points of view being showcased this is just as refreshing as a tall glass of Lindemans wine at the end of really long day.  Stay dialed in to when the next Australian Indigenous Fashion Week at their home page here.
