Relatable fashion

EVELEIGH: Australian Fashion Week was celebrated May 13-17. Events were held at Carriageworks, with some shows held offsite.

SSH photographer Paul Bramble reports: “I loved it. So much creativity and work goes into it all, from clothing to sets, lighting and professionalism.

“Highlights included Carla Zampatti’s collection on opening night, Bec + Bridge at the Overseas Passenger Terminal – that was impressive. Wackie Ju was conceptual, very artistic, and the Romance Was Born show featured massive spheres like planets suspended from the roof – it was immersive and cosmic, mind-blowing!

“On the Thursday we got to see In Relation Way, five collections from First Nations designers. The whole thing was brilliant.”

Sponsored by David Jones and Indigenous Fashion Projects, In Relation Way presented a weaving of stories of legacy, matriarchy, honour, connection, arrival, and Country, bringing together a way of being, in relation way.

The show was a ceremony to designers and their achievements across a 24-month journey in the Indigenous Fashion Projects’ Pathways Program. 

The five designers were: Gali (swimwear by Kamilaroi man David Leslie); Ihraa Swim by Bardi (Nyul Nyul and Nyikina woman Nat Dann); Joseph & James by Gooreng Gooreng and South Sea Islander woman Juanita Page; Lazy Girl Lingerie by Waayni woman Cassandra Pons; Miimi & Jiinda by Gumbaynggirr, Dunghutti and Bundjalung women Melissa Greenwood and Lauren Jarrett.
