Global Indigenous Runway

Jaeden Williams' Freshies

Presented by Global Indigenous Management, the Indigenous Runway Project features and supports Indigenous fashion designers, models and artists from Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA.

Supported by Creative Victoria, the 2017 Global Indigenous Runway at VAMFF will showcase fashion inspired by the creation stories of Pacific Islander, Maori and Native American designers, with three of Victoria's most exciting Aboriginal designers adding their vision to the catwalk.

Womenswear designer Lyn-Al Young, streetwear designer Jaeden Williams and swimwear designer Damien Loizou have developed new collections for the event, under the mentorship of leading fashion consultant Philip Boon.

A collaborative project between Victorian Aboriginal printmaker Lisa Waup and designer Ingrid Verner will also be presented as part of the 2017 Global Indigenous Runway, with the pieces later available to buy from Craft Victoria.

The 2017 Global Indigenous Runway is at Melbourne Museum at 5pm on Saturday 18 March.

Tickets are $35 for General Admission or $55 for VIP entry with pre-show drinks.
