Meet The 5 First Nations Designers Honouring Connection To Country At Australian Fashion Week

The IFP Pathways Program is a two-year fashion label development program in partnership with David Jones, which supports mob designers through workshops and mentoring with established Australian designers such as Bassike, Bondi Born, ESSE, Alemais, Papinelle,  Blanca and Jac + Jack. This program and their showcases at AFW have been a significant opportunity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander visibility, with brands being able to represent their stories to a local and global audience. Previous graduates of the program include Liandra
Gaykamangu of Liandra (previously Liandra Swim) who presented her first solo show at AFW this week.
