The Global Indigenous Runway 2018 presented high end fashion by Indigenous designers from the outback of Australia to the shores of New Zealand and Pacific, and even from the Rocky Mountains of Canada. Presented at Melbourne Museum as part of VAMFF 2018, guests were treated to bubbles and canapes upon arrival, then were mesmerised by the colourful and flowing garments that graced the runway. The collections were inspired by environment, culture, arts and history, the runway as much a statement on the here and now, as it was a night of celebration and acknowledgment of the next crop of Indigenous designers coming up through the ranks.
